Words In The Night
by Joan Sessoms

How do you explain where the words come from-that even you do not know? I say from MY ANGELS.

I guess it started in Hawaii when we took our daughter to meet her grandparents.

In the light of night, pen and paper, I wrote what came to mind. Next morning, showing what I had written, my mother asked how about writing one for me? Several nights passed and once again the words came. Her advice to me was do not lose these, save them. As it turned out, those were my first of many poems.

There was never an indication when the words would come. Then in the years 2010 and 2011 they came almost every night. They were piling up on me. Now what to do next?

Now I am at the front door. Is this where it begins?

Is this the mist of knowing?

About the Author

I love the outdoors. My mad love is for football games and ocean fishing-watching the waves as they roll by and waiting for that first bite. I love the special holidays, especially Christmas with the gathering of family. Last, but not least, I love the gift and knowledge of writing.

I was born in Boston, Massachusetts. In passing years I moved to Seattle, Washington. I graduated from high school. I married, but the war took him away.

A visit to friends in North Carolina once again brought me the chance of love. We married in the church. Within a couple years we welcomed our daughter, Kimberly. She in turned married her high school sweetheart. She and David gave us the love of two grandchildren.
