My Cart 


No Chauffeur Required
Sarah Gilbert


My daughter is out
with her new license
and our car.
I am home
looking out windows
with free time on my hands
to write poems
make a quiche
and look out the window

Sarah Gilbert lives in Appleton, WI. A retired La Leche League Leader and homeschooling mom, she serves as regional VP for the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets and coordinates monthly poetry readings at a local cafe. Her dormant poetry writing was awakened in 2000 by the second of four (so far) Lynch Syndrome hereditary cancers. Sarah also weaves, gardens and makes a fine lap for her three cats.

Post New Comment:
The poet is relax and trusting, filling her time with poetic thoughts. Does poetry breed so much faith? Perhaps it does, as it is a very pondering way.

Good poem, Sarah. With their freedom comes our worry. I think I'd be washing those windows nonchalantly to stay there longer...Marilyn Zelke-Windau
