I'm a complicated lady, and at times I can't even figure me out, so don't you try either! I retired
from a very fulfilling career as a nurse, but I won't elaborate on that... Now I'd like to continue with
the real passion in my life: poetry, writing, reading, and learning. There it is in a nutshell. Iím on a
grand quest for Wisdom, and I find a little more each day. I also seriously examine religion and
philosophy, and Iím a very enthusiastic reader of great books. Good music is a must for me, and I
simply can't do without it. I'm the most eccentric person I know, but I consider that a good thing.
My eccentricities are what make me who I am, and I never wanted to be anyone but me. Bob Dylan
is my luminary, and every poem he has written is my favorite poem; Every song he sings is my
favorite song. Also, I respect and enjoy the poetry of Robert Frost very much, and the wisdom of
the philosophers I appreciate goes on and on.... but Jesus is my TRUE HERO!!***
I write under the pen name Cathlyn Cross-Leming. (Cross was my grandmotherís maiden
name). I've written poetry, short stories and essays for as long as I can remember, and wish to
continue writing for as long as my eyes can see and my hands are able. Much of my poetry has
religious undertones, or is completely obvious, while other pieces are derived directly from life
experiences. The whimsical prose simply pops into my head. I invite you to read some of my
poetry by clicking on the titles and links listed below. Cruise around these sites and see what I'm up
to, and while your at it, have a look at the lovely awards I'm very proud of! Please check back from
time to time, I add new poetry, ramblings and ravings on a regular basis. You'll find even more of
my musings waaaaay on down the line. May Peace and Happiness always be yours, and never lose
the Faith. . . . Thank you so much for stopping by... and if youíd like, you may sign one of my guest books before you
go. I love hearing from my visitors.
