Today Was a Good Day

July 16, 2015 was memorable because we were operating a back ho.  When I first learned that blogging could very easily be included in the operation of a small business, I was keen to get started and to have some fun doing it.   My introduction to WordPress I taught myself by learning with two WordPress poetry tutorials some tips on creating poems and while I didn’t intend to stop with poetry, I thought I would include some of the poems I wrote for the WordPress courses here.

These are photos I took that day of Peter, the senior manager of Maple Lawn Cemetery in St. Catharines, working on the cemetery grounds with a rented back ho, including digging a six-foot deep burial plot we required getting down for a funeral.

my impressions tailored to the past updating from one to the next a lost dude where no one walks If there was once a man inside this, only was he there briefly. In other circumstances, someone else might have been thinking for him, but in this case, he believed he was responsible for his own thoughts. They were of his own devising this man was put here only for this single purpose, of making these thoughts. He was not to tread away Only when the setup files were completed, would he be set up and ready to run.

How many hours a lifetime is dark?At a point of vantage I park-the only light a star Shining down from afar In my virtual journal I mark
