Reality vs. Realism


it wasn’t that long ago

yesteryear’s gone you know

life not tied with a bow

by now you must know

indeed some highs

indeed some lows

overacted dramas

put on airs

vicarious judgments

gossipy stares

competing regrets

struggling upsets


ahead of its time

you know

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.

If life were predictable, it would cease to be life, and be without flavor. — Eleanor Roosevelt

  1. Eugi,

    I love how you make the flow of rhythm and rhyme feel so easy. Your poetry dances and so brings us to those places in our own memory where we experienced the not neatness of life as Sadje points out. And yet… we have this communion that says, in-spite of the messy, we carry onward.

    Thanks for sharing this!
