The Land Where I was Born
Monroe County, Al.
Of the South~
Of Sun and of Accent,
Love and Hospitality,
Don’t know What it is but I Love it,
This Place Where I Was Born;
Just Can’t Figure Out What Caused It,
Excitement Wild and Wonder-ment,
Yet it Come’s Through Open-ness,
From Deep Within My Heart-True;
Where is One to Share This?
Walking in My Thought-set,
Freedom Bred, Crossing Over,
Making Life What We Want It;
Magnolia’s, Belles, and Life-styles,
Star-lit Dreams and Realities,
I must Accept its Existence,
No Matter What I Do;
I Left This Place I Speak Of ,
Went to The Farthest Place Away,
But I Could Not Hide My Love Pain,
For the Place Where I Was Born:
April 12, 1997

IN 2011 I moved back here to Monroeville, Alabama,and have sought to belong. In many ways I already belong, due to being born in Mobile, Al,, as well as having roots placed with relatives, land, and memories from childhood. I am thankful that I do belong. If I had the finances, I would build my own little farm, or tiny plantation. Having many interests, I could maximize areas of my life by doing just a bit of each thing I like to do. Some of those things are flying, riding motorcycle, horticulture, hobby writing, painting, woodwork, historical biblical events, and cooking. I also operate heavy equipment and do minor landscaping and earth-moving every so often. So you see, there is lots for me to do here!
