A Boomer Poem, Inspired by “Older Americans Month”
It seems like just yesterday
When it was the first week in May
With a whole celebration
Of Boomer designation
And suggestions to live, work, and play.
First, we were encouraged to CONNECT
Through ways you might not expect
Like adopting a pet
Getting your hearing checked
Or taking classes, new skills to perfect.
For fun, the next week was CREATE,
To nurture this sometimes-elusive trait
You don’t have to be “arty”
Just create a dinner party!
Make something from nothing – don’t wait!
The last of the themes is CONTRIBUTE
Which encourages us to distribute
That stuff we’ve amassed
Like knowledge (or cash)
And to our communities pay tribute.
But May will be leaving us soon
As she ushers in the summer month of June
We’ll still CONNECT and CREATE,
CONTRIBUTE and cultivate
Experiences with which we’re now in tune.
At Windsong, we belong to a niche,
A special community in which
We have neighbors who are friends
With shared life experience
And our knowledge is used to enrich...
The communities where life’s lived with ease
With courtyards filled with flowers and trees
Homes thoughtfully designed
With our best lives in mind:
At Windsong, Where Life’s A Breeze!
