Moments
by
Lida E. Quillen

.

Well, they say
live every moment
or is it
live for the moment?

Anyway, I've lived
life
Now it is time to
write about
what I have learned.

If I've learned anything.

Have I learned anything?

One Writer's World
by
L. E. Quillen

.

What is this writer's life?
A hermit's existence?
A life of sacrifice?

A corner of the room
piled high with books
on writing

File folders stuffed with
false starts

Lucky pens in various
colors and shapes

Stacks of legal size yellow pads
Framed acceptance letters
Upbeat slogans

Envelopes, typing paper and
a word processor

Fill my existence,
my world.
