Poem – The Beacon

Check out a recent poem I wrote.  Click on My Poetry in the column at the right.  It was my first attempt at poetry in…probably 20 years!

It is likely an obvious poem.  The word choices and phrasing are all chosen to illustrate a “cycle of life”.  My inspiration for the poem came from helping a friend deal with a life-changing problem.  And don’t we all have those….life-changing problems?

In a score of years, I’ll be facing both “empty nest” and probably “menopause” at the same time.  That should be exciting.

But enjoy the poem.  It is short, but every word has meaning and clarity.  The photo I’ve included with it was taken by my very talented sister Judy.  This particular picture of the Boca Chita Lighthouse in Florida was the photo Judy used on the cover of her first annual Calendar.  She’s working on this year’s calendar already.  Check out her calendar and her many beautiful galleries at:
