WITHIN THE BLUFFS

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

The small river cities that line the Mississippi River are so charming. They are nestled into the bluffs and overlook the mighty river. So many stories are held there. This painting was done in Stockholm, Wisconsin, a few years back.

Another time, another place, a world so far gone by,
Where streets were paved with cobblestones, under an azure sky,
Where people took the time to share a word or more with you,
Where moments pass without distress or without much ado.

A place that’s gone, but still exists in small towns everywhere,
Away from all the ugliness that meets us here and there,
To capture just a little time, to hold it in our hearts,
To dream our dreams with hope and love, before this life departs.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  2. Kathy, I appreciate your poetic memories of a small town. My own memory bank is filled with the small towns of Montana, and I have enjoyed visiting other small places in my travels. When I can safely travel again, I will be eager to add to these memories.

      There are so many treasured little places hidden among the trees and on the water’s edge. Those towns act as sort of a refuge for us when the noise of the city overtakes us.
