At early dawn

I came to be...

with pen in hand

and a loving dream...

Echoing Resolve


____________________________


Easy river run
down vast beauty light
in morning dawn
crest before my eyes

For autumn rain has gone
sparking light of silver grace
now lay peaceful strokes
on hillside of new day

Each thought still remain
in splashed hues of poetic verse
a quenching bath of love
upon soft sky of birth

    Hang in there... Your training will add depth to your writting and material to write about... Take notes on ideas for later... A lofty goal to help others with that training. Good luck.

    Rick I did that training course many years ago, it was incredibly demanding but extremely interesting. I am glad I did it as my job means I meet and teach lots of people with various disabilities and disorders, makes the job so much easier and enjoyable...David

    Hey Rick! My son works with autistic persons and brings them over to the house for lunch upon occasion. I am tickled pink that someone like YOU has chosen this as a career path. These tender hearted and often broken hearted people need a heart like yours!! I salute YOU! Gwendolen
