I Used To

Poems by Mandy


I used to run in the fields
Under the light blue sky
Pulling out weeds
And catching butterflies
The trees made a melody
As I raced around them
I played aimlessly
Felt overwhelmed
With the stunning
Beauty that surrounded me
As I was running
Carelessly in the fields
When I was young
Jumping in the mud
Under the bright sun
That was the best feeling
I had as a child
I felt completely free
A place where I
Allowed myself to smile

3 Haiku Poems – Unshaded

Poet Rummager

Illustration by Poet Rummager

Emotions tethered.
All my life, I’ve walked the Earth.
My pace was measured.

What is this that beats
when for so long all was still?
My chilled heart now leaps.

Shadows have faded.
Light around you, surrounds me –
my soul unshaded.

Thursday’s Doors ~ the ‘burbs of Cleveland, Ohio


When I woke up at my brother,

Rich and Susan’s house,

ate my breakfast and

sipped hot coffee,

little did I expect

the baby fawns to be

out decorating the lawn,

across the street!

They live by North Olmsted park

where deer groups or families

congregate and roam freely.

This is part of a series of

photographs taken up

in the suburbs on

the “West side”

of a rock and roll

city called Cleveland!

Check out more doors ~

Here’s a host with the most,

Canada fellow blogger,

Norm Frampton:


Happy doors hunting from all over!
