Dedicated to my daughter Charlotte Jean Murphree
1958 – 2010
From me you shall hear
Trampling of insistent voices of those
Whispering in my ear. They
Are fierce, burning with passion, their
They speak to me with the force of a
Turbulent sea, other times with the
Surge of the tide, and always with
Respect; within me, they reside.
I will not say that this is my final book of poetry; however, it will be the last until I have pursued my other interest in writing personal and fiction. I have been on a journey; it has taken me from depths of a bottomless abyss, the path I walked was jagged and brutal both mentally and physically. The trip is documented in my poetry, it came from deep within my soul and my spirit survived. The healing continues, an ongoing process that will never end; but today, I can breathe. I have held my breath too long as I walked these rutted roads; and must now set out on a new path. I have chosen to begin a new “Story”.
I will continue to blog daily with my own work or reblog in support of my wonderful loyal followers. I will post when Rutted Roads is published.
