In heaps of passion do they come!
Tearing the lining,...Read More

Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and Thai
With some American influences as well
and lately Mexican food and Turkish...Read More

Ode On The Hourglass
appreciation, creation, destiny, education,

The Echo of Granite Peaks
allusion, assonance, courage, imagery,
Amidst the craggy heights, where granite kisses sky, There dwells a voice, a tempest’s cry, A soul aflame, a melody unbound, Glenn Hughes, the Voice of Rock, profound.

A Pencil and a Book
age, appreciation, best friend,
In the hallowed halls of college,
Where dreams bloomed like wildflowers,
I walked with a pencil in my pocket,
And a book cradled close to my heart.

Shared secrets in dimly...Read More
birth, color, feelings, flower,
The world awaits with bated breath
pause, listen and most all feel
there it is, a deep sense drumming
in the back ground coming to life.
we all feel it, indeed yearn for it
insistently wait for it to come
America, we are not just the greatest country in the World.
We are are the American race,
pioneers of the freeborn.
We are a family, like a family we
have our problems.
Last drop of ink
Love is a silent emotion,
invisible to open eyes.
But, I saw the naked soul
of her enigma -

confidence, courage, encouraging, uplifting,
If at times you feel you want to cry,
And life seems such a trial.
Above the clouds there's a bright blue sky,
So make your tears a smile.
As you travel on life's way,
with it's many ups and...Read More
