Uniquely Yours



“Remember no one can make you feel inferior
without your consent.”
Eleanor Roosevelt


A droplet from the sky

crystal tears from my eyes

you say I am inferior

but clueless as to my interior

A droplet from the sky

becoming frozen as I fly

why can you not see

you know naught of me

A droplet from the sky

unsurpassed beauty meets the eye

truly one of a kind

another you will not find

A droplet from the sky

my existence, a natural high

my intricate exterior

delicate and far superior

 Uniquely yours,


I am linking to Patricia’s Place  – In Other Words, A weekly Wednesday Event.

  1. hi, I don’t know how old you are but I am 53 and I am over at Bernadette’s place at her Wednesday Senior Salon. It is fun and you meet others and put your link up! If you have interest just thought of you! xx


  2. This is a GREAT poem! I love it!


  3. I cannot believe you are 70!! Wow, I agree with Lynz you do sound like 40. As I’m writing this I’ve often wondered about the ages of some of the bloggers I follow and I find it interesting that unless this info is shared we can come to all sorts of conclusions but it doesn’t really matter because writing breaks through all barriers. The Eleanor Roosevelt quote is one of my favorites and I love the poem.

    • Thank you Bernadette. I am so glad Lynn at LynzRealCooking told me about your blog. Amanpan comes from my cat’s name Amanda Panda. My name is Franci and I am a retired 70 year old ditsy blond.


  5. Fab poem – I love these lines in particular: “why can you not see/you know naught of me”


  6. Wonderful! You have a way with words and tell a story beautifully with just a few. How often others are clueless to who we are seeing only what is visible to them. People are more than the outside of the package and what is inside definitely more interesting. Thanks for being a part of In Other Words!


  7. Beautiful poem 🙂 #InOtherWords #RamblingsOfAnOldSoul
