Each shoe,
a life He knew,
buds of His olive tree-
next time perhaps,it could be you..
or me !

(When our oldest daughter was 
in high school, she did not have a 
date to the prom or military ball
so I did not make plans to get a 
dress..She came in the day before 
the event after school and said that
she had a date..That gave me twenty
four hours to come up with a dress..
I had only $20 left until next paycheck
and no credit card..I went to the 
fabric store and got fabric and pattern.

The dress had 12 gores and it was floor 
length..I stayed up until 2 am sewing up
a dress for her to wear the next eve..)

The sounds 
                    Of air moving 
                             against water in  jar  
                                         moist oxygen now delivered
The noise

Divider of People

Great walls
Sealing dried tears
Locking out yearning hearts
Like Jericho’s walls, they too will—

Release him, China!


                                                      Iron fisted 

                                              Silent eyes suffering 

                                  Underneath bloodied golden stars 

                                    Communist terror reigns supreme 

                                            Wan Yanhai vanishes

Fighter (Insurgent Man)


                                                      Insurgent man 

                                                   Detonator in hand 

                                  Stone eyes watch the troops approaching 


                                        Awaits the optimum moment 

                                          Shouts "Death to Infidels" 

                                                Soldiers survive
