I am doing my very best to learn how to invite a friend to wikinut so I can be a star. It seems it was all my last post lacked.

Imagine
You are reading a book.
It’s a very interesting book.
It starts “It was the best
Of times,
It was the worst
Of times”.
You think you may have read it before…Maybe
In school, you think.
You have almost finished
The first chapter.
You put your finger
In the pages
To mark your place.
You reach for your coffee.
It’s a nice dark roasted Sumatran
Fixed just the way you like it.
It tastes so good.
You put the cup down
And watch as the steam rises- - -
And you open your book.
You open it to the page your finger is on.
You try to find the spot
Where you stopped,
But nothing looks familiar to you.
You freak inside
Saying “Not again. Not again”.
You turn to the beginning of the chapter.
You start reading.
It’s a very interesting book.
You think you may have read it before…Maybe
In school, you think.
It starts
“It was the best of times,
It was the worst of times”.

Now you know where I live.
Did I tell you
That I have two guitars and a key board.
I think I must have played them before.
My wife tells that’s so…But what’s a pick?

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.

“It was the best of times,
It was the worst of times

it could have been

''it was worse of times
it could have been worst of times ''

when I was sulking
someone said smile things could be worse...
I smiled and things got worst

.. My better half said
''how dare you smile
take care ...smile only
at me!!

Sad to admit that I can relate to your woes! Now, where in the heck did I put my glasses!

Thank you spirited. Though I have sit in my home of 27 years, a home built by my hands and had no idea where I was...It comes and goes.

Thank you Nancy. I lost a lot of memory with the stroke, but the old movies are like new to me.
