If you have somehow found your way to this site I apologize. This was my very first attempt at a blog but I didn’t like it so I deleted it.  Or rather I thought I did. Intrepid people still find their way here. So I thought I should leave something for them to read.  There is nothing worse than anticipation left unfulfilled. So a little something . . . .

Whoosh is the sound

Of a life passing by

But wait just a minute

I beg to defy

Whoosh is the sound

That I hear in my head

As I flit between poems

And stuff that I’ve read

Short stories and quips

A thought just erupted

Came right to my brain

Perhaps I’ve corrupted

An idea for a story, oh wait

That’s a quip

Now whoosh it is gone

Not right for this trip

Oh look there’s a sale

On shoes for my feet

A poem about footwear?

I’m thinking I’m beat

Perhaps maybe not

As exhaustion seeps in

And I flutter about

That whoosh such a din

The words racing by

That I’m trying to hold

A few near my pen

My passion is bold

I’ll share my beloved

As they’re whooshing about

These words I hold dearly

Some semblance no doubt

Whoosh is the sound

Of a life moving on

Not backward but forward

Cuz my time’s not done

My blog now resides at http://www.butterflysand.com.  I would like to welcome you.  There are Daily Quips (I love a one liner), Poems, Paintings, Short Stories and a weekly Post about anything. You might enjoy it. Be well.  Be happy. Be yourself.

    Hello 🙂 We used to follow each other! But I deleted my old blog site (dreamkatcherblog.wordpress.com) and migrated my posts to a new domain (I just bought it the other day hihi). It’s now loveafterlove.net 🙂 I’m visiting all of the authors I have followed before and give everyone a notice. I hope to maintain the connection. Have a nice day!

    If you consider this just a “little something”, well, bless you child!

    When you can throw seep and whoosh (multiple times!) in so effortlessly, not to mention your dressing up of din and semblance in their most luxurious applique? Oh no, you do not need to apologize. About anything.

    When we click on your Gravatar, it sends us to this site.

    So you just need to change the blog address link that’s on your Gravatar settings to be your new blog, so folks would automatically be send to there, rather than to here.

    Just FYI.
