My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.



Some very wise words to start my day today, thanks to “ME and the Boss”.

I hope you find them helpful too.

Have a great week. πŸ™‚

ME and the Boss



β€œEvery day we should

hear at least one little song,

read one good poem,

see one exquisite picture,

and, if possible,

speak a few sensible words.”


~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Always headlong into

must do this for the family,

must do that for the boss,

don’t wait until you retire,

today, do something for yourself.

There is always time, a second or two,

that you can squeeze into your day to do

something nice for yourself,

if you just take the time.

Happiness is a few sensible words.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.


ME and the Boss
