Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

"Seattle" by Ana Byers

Introducing an original poem by Ana P. Byers
Ana is 10 years old and recently moved to Seattle from Portland, Oregon.
This gifted young writer just happens to be my grand-daughter!
by Ana Byers
lights flashing
horns honking
phones being used
TV's blaring
restaurants overflowing
ferry horns' blast
balls fly through the air,
fans cheering "Go Mariners"
concerts by night
radio music by day
cover your ears or join the music
Seattle may be loud
but it has meaning.

I hope you will publish more of your granddaughter's poems or even encourage her to blog her poems herself!
Lovely gift, being a poet.
