Remember Pearl Harbor
Seventy-eight Years Ago
By Franklin Price

Seventy-eight years ago,
At the rising of the sun
Came the day of infamy; 
Our present times begun

The sleeping giant awakened,
To become the greatest power 
Would take four years and many lives
To have our finest hour

The Snow Falls

Softly my love, 
I watch every flake,
come slowly from no where, 
outside my vision, 
beyond the window boundaries,
magical…even whimsical…
the white soft “above”, 
to the hard ground here below. 
soon a giant blanket of pure…beauty. 

You fell asleep in...Read More

The Unwanted Glance

Look closely at my hand. 
Proudly I display a band. 
It tells everyone in the room, 
I am taken. 
I do not have to say more. 
It is not necessary. 
God is the witness, 
and none shall separate....Read More

I love to Hate You. 

You are too late,

too little,

from some far off place.

A place where butterflies live
A place which helps me get happy
My own home,my own phone
My wonderful view of a drone
Shinning lights and wondrous piles
You must come along sometime
And greet upon a passing pansy
My Grandfather's wishing valour
A home away from homes!...Read More

Anniversary Poem
Got married on Thanksgiving Day;
A backyard was the venue.
Extended family gathered;
There was turkey on the menu.

It inconvenienced everyone
Yet those who loved us made it.
The traffic was horrendous
And the stress did thus pervade it.

But now, 44 years later,
Here we are and...Read More

A Selfless Love - A Tribute To My Dad
I was not ready to lose you.
But you were taken from me, anyway.


On a sunny day that started so normally.
Without any sign of the emotional pain to come.


Life’s like that, I guess.
It shouldn’t be that way.  It just is.

Important Me

I drive a bright car. 
It is not a lemon 
but it has the same color.
I don’t understand, 
why the man laughed, 
as I drove it off the lot. 
I should go back…
and punch him.

It smells just right,

Did I hear insecure ?
If the shoe fit wear it 
And in my case every pair will fit
