Aunt Florie (Reignites) "Poetry 4 Every Occasion"

Hey my Simple Treasures/Black Swans: I just thought I would stop in and share something about me, poetry and another dimension. So, years ago beginning at 14 until the age of 18, I created an unofficial small business for myself called "Poetry 4 Every Occasion" and I would customize poems for people who lost their loved ones.

It was something I enjoyed but it was sad when I would have to ask questions about their beloved in order to create the poem that was needed. However, when my brother passed away, that was the last time I did customization for that area of life because it became too hard and I knew then just what they were going through as me being my own client. Because though I enjoyed making people happy with the combination of my words and there thoughts mixed with emotions and nostalgia it was also sad because it hurts to want to begin to remember that a loved one is gone and are never to return.

But, when your best friend asks you to write a poem for her family do to their recent loss, you do it, and truth be told, well, I was honored. I couldn't even believed they remembered I used to do that, as it was so long ago, and though I haven't done it in a long time, it really did come back as natural as it started. Only this time was different, I wrote the poem and then as a Poet, I was asked to deliver the poem at the repass. God blessed. They were more than happy with the poem, overwhelmed with the delivery and to top it off I presented them with an autographed poem with all of the bells and whistles. They loved it and I love them and I'm humbled, grateful and blessed.

Thank you Lord for allowing me to bless others that has always supported me. Always help where you can.

The poem is called "Aunt Florie"...

About Me

My photo
I am someone who is attracted to paper and aroused by my thoughts and feelings which are connected to my pen. I am someone who is enlightened by what I and others write down and often surprised about how I and others think. I am somone who believes that I am all that my poetry speaks, all that my poetry bleeds, all that my poetry reeks, all that my poetry feeds. Poetry is me. Therefore I am poetry. Until...
