                         “ISLAND LADY”
                                   by
                               Bill Charles
                                 ~~~~
I visited Vancouver Island, sometime a while back,
        it gave to me many things,
                that my heart seemed to lack…
Like how to relax, peaceful harmony of mind, and serenity,
        all of these I had forgotten,
                for inside there was no tranquility…

And while I was there traveling around, a sweet lady I did meet,
        she lived on the Island, with a Frenchman,
                who himself, was pretty neat…
This couple I came to know, and so very good to me,
treated me as one of their own,
something you’d hardly see…

A lady somewhat different, lived there most of her life,
        went through many hard times,
                and a lot of strife…
But each day she would meet, with her caring nature,
        taught me a lesson she did,
                it was quite a booster…

I learned how to be humble, and take little, but give more,
        these two people, for them most anything,
                I would do for…
This is a most enchanting place, where I met them actually,
        her Frenchy they call ‘Frog’,
                and his special woman, ‘Island Lady’…

Something about that wonderful place just continues to call  your name, doesn't it, BCI... You'll find your way back, I'm sure... Nicely expressed, my friend...

what fun, what friendliness!!!

btw, did you get to see Fisgard Lighthouse?

have you ever been to San Juan Island in the San Juans?

I went there a year and a half ago, Friday Harbor and Lime Kiln Lighthouse.  The place is full of artists and writers, I want to live there.  Of course, I want to be a writer in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.  I think that Vancouver Island could lend itself as readily to the artist/writer as well.  I'm happy you were able to have such a relaxing/learning experience.  Thanks for sharing it with us in this poem.

Cpat Hair - yes, they are very interesting, and the best... Thank you for reading about the journey...

Nan - ah yes, something about that place does call out to me. I will go back Nan, it's me...

VAS - the most friendy people I have ever met. And yes, I spent a couple of hours at Fisgard taking pictures and just enjoying the place. Just beautiful.

Have not been to San Juan Island, but would love to... I would love to live on the island and write and just spend the time knowing some serenity, and the peacefulness once again that it brought to me while I was there.  Thank you VAS, for your words...
