Enjoy Where We Are
We let our dreams vibrate
Sending signals in every direction
Feeling all the satisfaction
For making it this far
Focusing on our own body
For good health and habits
We have worked extremely hard
Writing down our progress and temporary setbacks
We have done well
Always helping others whenever we could
Sharing each small accomplishment
Like flying a kite on a windy day
The wind picks up and we fly high
The wind dies down we begin to drop
Seeking a new spot
Gliding in position
Regaining speed and rising up again
Resisting the fierce wind
Up in the air
Free to go in any direction
Traveling with a new purpose
Not just from the bottom looking up
This time from the top looking down
Seeing the beauty of nature
Surrounding me on every corner
Inspired by all that is

So very true! I loved your poem.

Peggy Woods I started to write a comment about time and what a beautiful connection you have made. One line led into the next one and the comment went on for over a page, I copied the comment and decided to turn it into a hub. From the moment I started writing, I was afraid I would hit the wrong button and the words in front of me would erase. I don't know what key I hit but it is to the left of my keyboard and sometimes my hands don't move in harmony with my mind. I am a lefty and somehow my left-hand leans on the keys more than my right hand. Has this ever happened to you? Do you know what key I am talking about? Life is funny this way. The things that we love so much can easily be erased in a flash. Then again if we are blessed the same things done at precisely the right time can last forever. Thank you for all your beautiful and inspirational comments. They continue to push me in directions I did not know existed as well as I did not know how to go. All I can do is type away and see what the next word will spark. My only wish is to create a moment of joy and a laugh. That we may take one extra second and think before we act. Sharing each of our gifts and talents with the world. Instead of making the wrong choices we all will regret. Have a wonderful morning it is 5:15 A.M. here in Maine. Still dark out my window. I know in about an hour the sun will rise and here we go again. Welcoming life and all the beauty we can see and don't see. I think you are the only Peggy I know. Here in Maine, I am surrounded by woods. Put the two together and when I think of one I will always think of the other. It is funny how our brain works. Some things in life once they are learned they can't be undone. I am glad this is one of those things. I hope you don't take any offense to my connection. I think it is a pretty nice way to remember someone. A way to live on for eternity. Happiness brings a smile to those are willing to accept it. This all started with a special line you said It makes me think of the passing of time, and that time comes fast and furious! Thank you.

Your poem is beautiful. It makes me think of the passing of time, and that time comes fast and furious! We must focus on the good and happy times, and hopefully, create more as we move ahead.

Bill Holland There were times in my life that weren't so pretty. Somehow someway I managed to get through them and continued forward. Looking ahead what could be, is sometimes, so much better than what could have been. One good thing about getting old we seem to forget most of the things we just don't want to remember. Surprisingly cold here today, I am happy to type and write on the computer. I know I am safe and out of harm's way. It can be a crazy mixed up world. Thank you for reading and sharing. With the daylight slowly disappearing and my handful of grapes almost gone I can move on. Have one happy night.

Satisfaction for making it this far....I'm blown away, my friend, that I made it to seventy...and I'm still healthy! Who would have thunk it!
