A most difficult question,
upon which to deal,
a personal query,
before it, we kneel.

In a breadth of a breath,
we poke at and snub,
if ne’er it be obtained,
refrain we do not,

Chase if we must,
driven by riddle,
what is the why,
stuck in the middle,

Why should it matter,
why should anyone care,
why insist on […]

Be the face of what is possible. A catalyst of inspiration. Act instead of speak in a way that questions others to raise the bar of personal evolution.

To write is to add texture to the tale, promise to prose, flavor to the story. Where love cradled blossoms, giving a home to the imagination and the child in us all, waiting to be woken.

I turned the corner to find my 1 year old granddaughter at top a tall ladder, trying to touch the sky; no one told her she didn’t know how.

The wind silently walks through quiet villages, built into the rock, hundreds of years ago, echoing the past.  It Elevates the condor’s outstretched […]

Somebody’s Somebody

Once a loving mother,
living on the street’
haunted reminiscence’
away from hope’s retreat.

Little league playing brother,
in a moment lost his way,
mislead pride of others,

Wide-eyed dreaming daughter,
stranded, alone and lost,
giving away her innocence,
to vermin at a cost.

Used to be someone’s father,
living behind a store,
extinguished […]

Death of Friendship

Ups and downs lay the foundation or take their toll on the road to becoming closer or further apart,

Sometimes you simply speak less […]
