A Pondering Poet




~God Bless Each~


redleafonrockinsteam250x250.jpg image by Featured_Page



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
