pathways of a troubled life
hair so white it was spun
by the moon’s shadow
sitting at a table molded
from an ancient cypress
tears float from olive eyes
opening her fissuring lips
black roses and screams of old

Deep, Joni. God’s angel must be watching over you.
Thank you Tim. You are so thoughtful. Yes, I don’t remember a time especially when I was little, when I didn’t talk to God. I truly believe His protection was with me. Blessings my friend. ❤️🦋
A truthful description “mountains of rubble where hatred fell”. It certainly piles up doesn’t it?
Yes it certainly does my wise friend. It lands on my shoulders, chips away at my heart and keeps me in prayer. 🦋🦋💝😍
Oh, Joni, that was a masterpiece! Congratulations on such a captivating poem. You are quite the poetess! Writing poetry is not my wheelhouse although I have written some. I’ll stick to being The Storyteller and let poets like you write the beautiful poems! 💕
Hi Nancy thank you so much for all your encouragement and your kind words. I am trying to learn how to write interesting
stories, it’s not nearly as easy as it looks, or reads especially if it’s one of yours or some of the other amazing storytellers online. So hats off to you my friend and thank you so much for all your support sending big hugs and love, Joni

Wow! You never cease to amaze me with your words, Joni! ♥☺🤗
Thank you Tiffany. Do you ever paint something and then later look at it and Say wow, did I paint that? Sometimes that happens with me when I write a poem, I read this one later and said wow I can’t believe I wrote that.
I appreciate your very kind comment Tiffany as I consider you to be quite talented and appreciate anything you have to say about my writing. I am sending you much love and thanking you for your continued support. Love you, Joni
