You Need To

Sometimes you need to mute the voices Listening to the sound of nothing, Rather than hear the sounds of the naysayers Or the ones with nothing to say That isn't negative. Sometimes you need to close your eyes Walk right into the fear that is holding you back Never turning around. Sometimes you need to... Continue Reading →


Have you ever wondered where inspiration comes from when writing a poem? Most probably assume it always has something to do with me, and most of the time that assumption is completely wrong. I Really Don't Want This - I spent the weekend with a dear friend of over 30 years that just got out of... Continue Reading →

I’m Sorry for the Rain

There is sadness every hello Happiness in goodbye We can sit and wonder where it's gone Or even ask why.

Heaven Can Wait

You'll have to wait for me I'm not ready yet Death will have to take a back seat To everything I need to do. There are children that require my attention Many deeds I've left undone Words I haven't spoken yet People I have yet to touch With my hands Not my words.   Heaven... Continue Reading →

You can read about the places he's been And where he wants to go He has a fantastic rhythm A really hypnotizing flow. You can read about his adventures The women... Continue Reading →
