A pearlescent moon cools the night
and paints the sky with silvered light.
clouds drifting upon wisps of trails
and spirits sing as earth exhales.
Her ageless beauty still prevails
she shares wealth and love without fail
her stamina a fairy-tale
sunrise sunset silhouettes sail.
The morning sun wakes from the night
and paints the sky with golden light.

A gander at me –
I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals.
