I've this new friend, she's so complete.
Solid as a rock, from her head to her feet.
We met online, sharing poems, lives and paths.
We talked about everything and always have a laugh.
She's shared her life … from before and in the now.
She's a busy gal with a family and a really great man.
She works a job, writes her poems
and is forever making plans.
We've shared some deep thoughts …
and found many things in common.
But my favorite thing about new my friend …
is that she's as stubborn as a Brahman!
That's a type of Bull,
for those of you who don't know …
just try and steer her off of her path …
and those horn's she'll surely show.
Feisty, fierce … opinionated too …
To claim that she is headstrong … would not be untrue.
She's a really great Mom, with a brood to be proud of, no jest.
They are accomplished and well rounded, always doing their best.
I'm so happy that I've met this pal,
even chatted with her and hubby on the phone.
I'm sure that when we finally meet in person,
our kinship will be wholly grown.
That will be great,
a new closeness to live and to be.
But this will bring yet another task …
a task just for me.
For this is only part one of my poem …
Part two to be written when …
I finally see and hug my new friend(s) …
and our friendship starts yet again!
Again, so sorry I haven't been here. I have been so busy with the Tree Farm all Summer and just when I thought it was coming to an end, we had Hurricane Micheal blow through here and pretty much destroy our yard and some of the property.
Now, it will take me all winter to drop the leaning trees and cut up them and the completely fallen ones and drag them to the burn pile. I also have over 400 linear feet of fence to replace.
But I'm not asking for a pity party. I just had the first of my two stent operations and I am hoping that by doing all this work, it will bring me back to healthy enough to go back out on the road and off of Disability!
One can only hope.
My trip out west will have to wait until Spring. I guess it was supposed to happen this way.
This poem is about someone that I met here at HP and become really good friends with over the phone and texting. I can't wait to meet her and her family.
