My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

My Champion!




A bouquet and a tribute for a very special lady.


When I saw this wonderful prompt on the new OSI list, the first person who came to mind was my grandmother aka Big Ma!

If you haven’t already read this tribute  I hope you enjoy it for the first time. For those who might remember this story/post, I hope you enjoy the encore.

Re-reading it still brings back such fond memories.  And  tears to my eyes.

“I miss you Big Ma and I will always love you.”


Here’s my story about one of the most important people to have ever been in my life:  Because of You


PS: If you are looking for some culinary inspiration this weekend, stop by Veggies… for a new recipe post.
