Weathering the Storm @MidlifeMollie
Topic - Positive mindset
We might all be in this same storm
But if we pause to think,
Some of us have waterproofs,
While others may well sink.
For some, the thunder’s deafening
And circling overhead,
Others can watch the lightning strike,
Cupping cocoa from their bed.
For some, a distant rumble
Might interrupt a day,
But some are stuck in puddles
And they cannot splash and play.
If life’s dealt you an umbrella,
Use it wisely and you’ll find
Many others seek its shelter,
Look around you and be kind.

A small bio about you:
I am an author and poet, focusing my time on playing with words. I recently left a long career in primary teaching and now have time to devote to my writing and my family: husband, Stuart, two grown-up children, Matthew and Zoe, and a furry cockapoo called Gizmo.
I love taking long walks with the dog, being inspired by the nature around me. I also run a local community drama group where my passion for acting and dancing has an opportunity to flourish.
I am proud to have published four books so far, two of which showcase my poetry. Poetry is in my veins and I feel blessed when readers tell me how they have connected with my poems. That’s what really matters, connecting - one word at a time.
