Recipe for Tea

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Recipe for Tea

It’s important to me to have the
proper temperature of hot water for tea,
and it’s also important the time
each tea bag is allowed to steep.
When the kettle starts to whistle,
only then is the water hot enough,
and after in the cup, take the bags
out or the flavors of tea get tough.

Near the threshold of love and hate

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Near the threshold of love and hate

There’s a thin line between ecstasy and pain,
somewhere near the threshold of love and hate.
The difference decides marriage and divorce rates.
The anxiety created affects outcomes of first dates.
Fear of the unknown makes many people wait.
Results are a matter of personal will or of fate.

Post Cards from the Past

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member. Adrian Parker, one of first LSC brothers, nominated her with the suggestion the all-male fraternity has become more like a professional or honorary type of fraternity.

Karen Ladonnavich is a real estate executive and manager for a major real estate company with an office in Peoria, Ill., where Parker has been an insurance agency since the 1990’s. He has successfully built up his agency to the point where he and his wife and four children from their marriage and past marriages have moved to a new house, brokered of course, by Ladonnavich. By now, most of the children have moved away and started their own families. The new residence has become “grandpa’s house” and Adrian his considering an early retirement to play the new role as a grandparent.

Parker and Ladonnavich are members of a Peoria -area chapter of an organization called BNI, that stands for Businesses Networking International, which thrives on its members referring business to each other, and the referrals are measured in dollars. Over the years, the homes Ladonnavich has sold were sometimes insured by Parker’s business, and Parker brought her new clients as well. As members, they got to know each other as friends and he discovered her hobby of writing poetry. After a review of her work and other later discussions, Parker has made a formal nomination to include her as a member of the unofficial Lambda Sigma Chi fraternity.

Here is her debut poem.

Post Cards from the Past

Post cards from the past
from places when we were apart
show the strength of love in our hearts.
Colors may be a bit faded but there’s
still an image to see,
and I will always remember
how well you made love to me.

Post cards from the past
from places when we were together
remind me that our love will last forever.
They say in the middle of trust is us,
and we have created a new reality,
a love which grows when you’re gone,
and continues when you’re with me.
