The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton



This is a try to conquer something new.

I think I need to stretch my brain a bit.

I’ll write one first, and then maybe a few

More if I can. I don’t think I can quit

Making rhymes that others’d like to read;

Might even try themselves if they are bold.

Who knows where this new exercise might lead.

I want to make a mark before I’m old.

This guy who reads my stuff has made me think

Of what I might be able to produce,

To grow my mind, to take me to the brink

Of some new place. I can’t declare a truce

On fighting time, of giving in to age.

This is a war I’m now willing to wage.
