They’re really not social distancing!
She struggles for identity
This nomad of the ages
Alone in her search
She wades through pages
Happiness or despair
Impossible to judge
One without the other.
Beyond her shelter of safety
She treks through life’s uncertainties
Seeking insight and inspiration.
Daring to test waters unknown
She yearns for personal identification
While wandering with little guidance
Into the abyss of self reflection.
Goal: Discovery of self
summer’s heartwings beat

27 years as school nurse – resignation poem
Headaches, stomachaches, and band-aids for cuts,
Information on flu, good hand washing a must.
Itchy heads, nosebleeds and coughs that don’t stop,
Try a glass of water, you don’t need a cough drop.
Skinned knees, rolled ankles, complaints, oh, so many,
A few minutes of rest, I doubt you’ll need twenty.
Communication with parents, by phone and by letter,
Please, keep your child home until the young one is better.
Immunizations, physicals, reports to the state,
Don’t make this your first stop or to class you’ll be late.
Now you may not believe this, but I know it’s true,
By the third week of June, I will be saying adieu.
It’s been quite an adventure, by any good measure,
To the future I’m looking, but the memories I’ll treasure.
