Family Trees - 2008 Poem Contest Winner
Family Trees are a mystery
the kind that binds us together,
you and me.
Wonders of our past draw us
beyond the realm of our lives.
They beckon us onward, with their
limbs that twine about us.
The voice of days gone by,
wafts in the breeze,
the aroma of the past,
captured momentarily in photographs,
memories forever motionless in time.

I am a 55 year old grandmother, and began writing when my Children was just little ones.
I have always loved to read, and when reading I would find myself walking in a world of the stories I was reading.
I thought this was absolutely wonderful that words fitted together correctly could make one see the story as if watching it on TV.
