Then and now

Hideko, I will be 70 this New Year’s Day

I miss the girl I used to be so many years ago
With three inch heels and slim of build
And heart with laughter filled.

I love the woman I am today
With orthotic shoes and wide of build
And heart with loving filled.

    What a wonderful poem! I have always loved poetry but mine seemed to have been written in the lower depths of pain over the years. I don’t understand this, but it became a healing tool for me at times. I may look into trying some now and see how it goes. Thanks so much for this poem.

    I wrote this Haiku for my grandchildren last year.

    Grandchildren, what joy
    Makes my heart feel light as air
    Floating with a smile
