    I Have a Hero

    I Have a Hero . . Alone in a big strange bedHer screams broke into my dreams.Scuffling and loud voices followed.A silhouettethrough frosted glassin the bathroom door, two women huggingone crying. It was Mommy.I cried too.Blue and red lights flashed through the open doorwhere Uncle Ray took Daddy to sit outside on the porch steps talking low.Daddy went awayUncle Ray picked me up,carried me back to bed and said, "It's OK Honey, you'll always be safe with me." ~~Judi Van Gorder Written from prompt, write a memorable childhood event Another poem about my Uncle Ray, Can't Keep a Good Man Down

    Memories Made Today

    Memories Made Today Picking blackberries on slow summer day, gingerly avoiding being pricked by thorns. Eating berries is part of the play, my grandkids giggle while Mamma warns. ~~Judi Van Gorder Tho Sau Chu
  3. "Ladies Never Jiggle" Things my Mama used to say: "Don't jump off a cliff unless you expect to fly"; I may have fallen a few times but jumping taught me how to soar. "A needle in a haystack can still stick you"; I learned a little prick once is a while keeps me on my toes. And my personal favorite, "Ladies never jiggle, wear your girdle." (I was 5'5" and weighed 108 pounds at the time.) Sorry Mom, I dumped the girdle but there is still a little "lady" in me. ~~Judi Van Gorder
