Biography

I am a retired actress. I was in the industry for over 40 years. I am new to writing poetry. I have written several articles about health and fitness and self published a book about the martial arts. I have read many words arranged by film makers and the tv folk. I wanted to share some of my own words thru poetry. I am at the last chapter of life. I would love to tell a few of my stories before I go. I would love to publish some of my poetry. Open mic is a goal as well.

Samples

Here is a 3 minute poem I will be sharing December 9 2016 It begins with singing a song to her. Hard to sing on paper lol. I'll try to learn how to do an audio so you can hear the silly little song at the top of this poem. It was her favorite. MILLION DOLLAR BABE She’s a one eyed itchy bitchy gimpy girl a one eyed itchy bitchy gimpy girl She’s a one eyed itchy bitchy gimpy girl she’s a million dollar babe that’s for sure --- What can I say about Betty she was always ready for what life brought She never complained no matter how much pain she was in she was my hero Lost an eye when she was small kissed and licked everyone thru it all No aggression did not blame people just grateful for the help Her knees went bad soon after she lost her eye don’t know why she had to go thru so much She went thru therapy her trainer could not love her more she wanted to please him well the treats helped some --- We had two good years before things went bad again This time is was all her skin she was allergic to everything Everything Even the people she adored This was the worst We tried every type of solution there was no resolution I open my wallet wide let doctors have all that was inside It did no good I watched her struggle each day wondering will she get better She would have gone on forever if I would have let her just to be with me Would that be fair No Her level of pain was off the charts didn’t stop her from breaking hearts with her playful way Had to greet all beg them to play ball she loved to fetch She had a duckie that was her best friend held it in her mouth everywhere she went waiting for someone to toss it She would leap in the air to catch it so high caught it most every time She slept by my side her body so warm Her temperature ran hot normal that is not it was part of the problem Her breeder did not care about health just beauty Felt it her duty to make pretty dogs so she could sell them and make money The puppies that were sick seldom got picked --- I saved Betty or did she save me not sure which Because she touched my life in a way I did not expect I do not regret having known her She passed when not quite six seemed so wrong But I had to be strong and let her go run with the others like her who spent a short time on this earth making their owners lives worth more than before She was my million dollar baby in every way I hope to see her again someday when it’s my time I asked her to save me a place I know that she will just to be near me like she use to be So strange how our pets touch our hearts help us learn about life They’re here for such a short time but the lessons they teach last forever… By Lynn Hahn

Thanks for your retrospective comment on I wanna be like Elvis Lynn. That's just a wonderful tale and a great experience. I've worked as a pianist with a few Elvis impersonators and his spell still reigns. Lucky you! Did you score on the plane or while grounded? (You needn't answer that!)

(just in case you miss this on my blog, thought I'd post it here, too).

Thanks Lynn, you are totally right. And, I'm sure you'll know from your work in the world of entertainment, laughter is genuinely infectious!

I once taught a session on laughter to groups of patients with chronic pain. In my opening spiel, I described a scenario and asked the group to try hard not to laugh. Always, once one person smirked, chuckled or laughed, the whole group started and it really set the scene for people to 'let go', often for the first time in ages. People would say that they felt like their 'old selves' again and yearned to regain their sense of humour. Powerful stuff this laughter treatment! Thanks again. Paul

Thank you Martin. I actually do sing parts of it when I do open mic. Very perceptive of you my friend.

Lynn this is lovely, but I cannot help feeling the rhythm of it lends it more to a song, which would be great. It's still a lovely piece either way I look forward to more. welcome to WOL
