I Embrace- A Poem

I embrace

the green mountain bosoms

of the Great Smokies

and the calming silence

of the lake early mornings,

quiet save the splash

of a fish in the rising mist,

reassuring that

after all is said and done,

there was a time

in living memory

when things were better.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.
