Ephemeral Joy

In the days of my youth

When time was of no essence

No thoughts for the morrow

Entered my lofty world

As I grew vibrantly

In the fresh breezes of life

Enjoying the sun’s kiss 

Until touched by Autumn’s breath

I felt the brevity of life



A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.
