This collection of poems is representative of my crazy patch life, some bright and new, some showing their age, some seemingly finding their way here from an alternate universe. Just as our lives twist and turn on a whim, so does this poetry patchwork.

Joni & Ken: An Untold Love Story
by Ken & Joni Eareckson Tada
This is the true love story of Joni and her husband of 30 years, Ken Tada. A love story showing what it truly means for a man and a woman to live in love… in sickness and in health. Even the honeymoon wasn’t easy. Did Ken realize what he was getting into when he proposed to Joni, a quadriplegic woman? As their marriage years moved on, Ken became increasingly overwhelmed by the never-ceasing demands of caring for Joni, who begins to experience chronic, extreme, nightmarish pain. Ken sinks into depression, and the couple finds themselves on parallel tracks in life, married and living under the same roof but drifting apart emotionally. But as they fight for their marriage and find their way through the mazes of depression and pain, they wrap their two lives around their rock – Jesus. During Ken’s denial of Joni’s diagnosis, and Joni’s thoughts of how wonderful a quick exit to heaven would be, they experience a personal visitation with the savior you will never forget.

The poems in "Idle Thoughts" are presented with special thanks to the Poem of the Day Yahoo group where George Smith helps get our creative juices flowing each April and November by sharing daily poetry prompts from Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides blog
Without his help, I would write very little and spend all my time quilting or playing games on my Kindle. As I have mentioned in other notes, I am not a driven poet, but a driven quilter and part time poet! Included here are personal reflections, thoughts on writing, the world around us, and a giggle or two to make you smile.
As the title of this book indicates, most of what I have written during the past year has been in response to weekly or daily poetry prompts provided by the good folks and readers of Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides Blog on the web at www.writersdigest.com.
As I age, time speeds by and thoughts slow to a crawl. Bear with me and I hope you enjoy the poems of 2013.
