I explained earlier that I have not been feeling well and am just posting what I have left in my drafts folder. I am almost finished with the Bench series. There was a Bench challenge for each month. I wrote most of my entries for the entire year last January. I wonder how much of the conversation on this bench is true or just made up or exaggerated.
I made this entry for a monthly bench challenge. I am not participating regularly anymore but will just post some bench poems I prepared.

I saw this picture several months ago and thought it very beautiful. I wondered if we ever really stop and look at all the opportunities around us. Are we scared to take chances and let possibilities pass us by?
I wrote this poem last September. It has been sitting in my drafts folder along with many others. This seemed like a good time to release it. The comments I received since returning have lifted my spirits. :)

I have been absent from blogging and computer for a while. Short answer is I have not/am not feeling well. I have not written any new poems or entries but am going to post what is left in my draft folder. I still have a lot in reserve.
I thank those who left comments of inquiry. I am sorry I won’t be around soon to read many blogs.
