Decided to have a bit of fun with the poetry challenge today…well, the muse left me last night…but it’s the same thing. When communicating with Chris via MSN, I used the alias Shady Wilbury, because I was being careful about privacy. Saw this prompt on the Poetic Asides site, and this came to me…dedicated to her, as ever, with love.
A ‘Shady’ poem
I was younger then
I didn’t want you to know me
So I called myself Shady
when we spoke.
It became my stage name
Not that I go anywhere near a stage now
Because I haven’t got the time.
But in my heart, I remain Shady Wilbury
Because of you.
Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
