A wedding tomorrow


Forever my baby boy


A family that is growing

Our love knows no boundaries or limitations, always welcome

I stretch

At the edge


I watch events unfold


I knew you would leave me

I raised you for just that purpose, a goal

Bubba gone

This poem is a Cadae: It follows the sequence of the first seven digits of Pi (pi = 3.141592). The first line consists of three syllables, the second one syllable, and so on. You could include several stanzas, or just one. Another variation would be to write three words for the first line, one word for the second line, etc….


Cake Decorator not my next job


Oh My Heavens…I have to write a poem


  1. Lovely. I especially like the last four lines… How strange that we can be so happy and so sad at the same time.

  2. You are a very talented writer. That’s beautiful.

  3. you’ve captured the feeling of loss and change so well, happy and sad a the same time

  4. i can feel your words on my horizon…it is true that is why we do what we do but it is so hard to see it unfold…

  5. No Nonsense girl

    love it. You’re such a great mom!!!! 🙂

  6. This is fantastic in form and also in painted emotion.

  7. Vixen,
    The bittersweet experience of holding on and letting go and feeling alone in the process is beautifully rendered here. God bless.

  8. Weddings are such momentous events that they do leave bits of perfection and yearning…

  9. I think I’m sort of lucky: I don’t think any of my kids are ever going to get married. So I haven’t experienced this. I can imagine it would be painful, as your poem expresses.
