learning a new map
one day at a time
I wrote this haiku today in response to Aubrie Cox’s “doodle” for March 20, 2012.
The link to her blog is http://yaywords.wordpress.com.
My post on March 17, 2012 also explains a little about her project this month. Her sketches are wonderful, and they inspire poems and conversations. Thanks to Cara Holman too for encouragement! Her link is http://caraholman.wordpress.com.

Oh my, that is exactly how midlife feels!
It’s sure the way I feel this morning. Need a compass. 🙂
Good morning, Francis, and thank you!
This says it well!
Dear Fergiemoto, Thank you!
I love this haiku, Ellen–I’ve been surprised that I could enjoy learning new things at my age. Guess it’s true–we’re never too old!! God bless you abundantly.
Hi Caddo, I am still amazed that I am blogging, which says a lot about WordPress!
I truly feel we are young as poets…
You are SO Right! I never dreamed of being a “blogger”–and perhaps it is poetry, as well as God’s grace which keeps us young!
All too true. Quite the architect out there who changed everything, rules included, when we hit mid-life.
Good morning, Yousei…thank you. Each decade seems to have its own character for me. I experienced a radical shift in my 40s, because of surgery and illness–now very well–and the sweet caregiving years with my mom. Many family funerals.
Now I am 58, 8 years beyond my mother’s passing, and it is hard to comprehend time!
Always interested in your work and thoughts…
Grateful for poetry and friendship!
