MY LIFE

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

The Hawk Portico 4:45pm

I want to write

My Life Out

in brilliant vibrancy

like the colours

of My Quilt

Purple & Teal

housed now

in a lavender room

by The Sea

(of course)

where I am

happiest

in a red deck chair

on My Front

Stoop

(The Portico)

entertained by amiable neighbours

taken care of

(in case I still need care)

by My

Glowingly Handsome Husband —

let Me write

too

about My Beautiful

Daughter

My Heroic Son

& yes

as the brightest

of all

let Me write

& Write

about My Love

which strings Me along

from water tap

to ocean spray

I drink

from My Glass

named Life

& I live

in Divine

Completeness
