Sepia Days

How I tried I tried to be good

the light turned a sepia tone

And Stone was her face Stone cold were her eyes

Hey stop yelling we can hear you

Can you see us?

Can you taste our salt running down our faces

I’d do my best for you

I long to be safe in your heart and arms

Let me comfort you from the storm in your heart

Hurricanes in your mind

Calm the waters

although I’m little

I comfort you

He won’t be back

But you need to stand tall for me

I’m your reflection

Any day now we will be a happy family

Not Alone as I Sleep


Sticky legs

Brown shell wing

I hear your crinkle crackle

Through my things

It is dark

That’s when you strike

Crawling with speed to fill up

The night

I jump up in haste

And turn on the light

You have disturbed my sleep

You are in for a fight

And I see you on the wall

You have entered the death zone

One swing with my broom

And you fall

That is not enough to stop you

You run and I quiver

You are running right toward

Me and I shiver

I spray you with raid

I hope it delivers

Still you run faster

Right by

My shoe

Take that you


And now

I will squish you


You are dead

I won this fight

Still there are more of you

Hiding somewhere

In the night

Before it’s too late

Hurry write now and

quickly before all the words in the world are thought of

written down and


Whatever is in that precious brain of yours…. spit it out.

What’s in your heart…..Roll it out of your tongue.

Give yourself permission to live

write and explore

On The Way To My Own Life

I’ve done it!!! I am not responsible for anyone but me. I don’t answer to any one. I’m free My child has moved out and moved on to a happy life. Yay!! Now I have my whole house to myself. Now I must establish a routine of exercise and socializing.

I signed up and belong to 4 gyms each of them have a pool. The pool is where I want to be. To me it’s the closest thing to flying. I can’t wait.

And the happiest of news was given to me last November. I’m going to be a grandma!! A Nana! I’ll drop in to visit now and then. My daughter lives in a different state so I’ll have lots of videos and pics to see. I can’t wait.

That is all for now. Have a great day everyone!! Joann Cohen
