a Rondine by tkbrown

Ingratitude is an attitude
that can interfere with calm life,
fills it with ire, trouble and strife,
allows rage to gain altitude
as voice ramps up the amplitude --
volume overflowing with rife . . .

It leads to responses of rude
interchange with one's husband or wife
that wounds the soul, cuts like a knife,
leaving disbelief at such a rude . . .

I believe family is a gift from God and should be treated as such. I love writing with a broad array of intent and purpose. I have written poetry virtually all my life, and much nonfiction in academia. My expanded efforts in all areas have finally taken off in retirement. I have much to accomplish now that I have the time. Other hobbies are painting, researching ancestry and myriad topics for my writing, knitting, crocheting, cooking -- always trying new recipes and always cooking for my health. I have many other hobbies, but these seem to dominate most of my time. Oh, did I mention I am the mother of three grown children and grandmother of seven. I have been blessed immensely and am the happier for it.
