Sitting here in plain sight without making any claims,
people first fearing learn to relax
about my name.
Call me Ms. D and I’m just one of you, maybe,
a little more eccentric, and blending
with the crags and hidden dangers,
like the water and the skies.
Soon it seems on this vacation death is just
to worries and travails, perhaps trust
can begin to grow.
I like you taking time off
I don’t interfere, and you frequently approach
inquiring if I need anything
as I sit and wait
on the sands of time.
After working 30 years providing mental health services to families and children, Deb has returned to writing poetry, fiction and non-fiction as outlets to her observations, creativity and slightly twisted perspectives. She is active in writing communities in Colorado and currently constructing her writer’s web page.
