"Share a Heartwarming Story"

Recently a member of my old Portland
writing group reached out to all those
members–past and present–to let us know
that our beloved mentor, Louis, was in
hospice.  She suggested contributing
of a piece of writing or note be sent 
to her, and we would all read our 
pieces aloud on Zoom.  This member
of our group is a kind, caring person.
I sent in my note and a poem, as did
many others.  Unfortunately, we were
unable to do this on Zoom due to
hospice regulations.  We lost Louis
on December 7th, but all of our 
combined efforts were collected
and given to his brother.  I will
miss Louis for his knowledge, sense
of humor, and enthusiasm for life.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. A collective gathering of poems was a moving gesture.
