Premium Member OUR LAST DAY
If we knew today was our last day…
If we knew tomorrow was the end of our bloom
what would we do
how would we act
what would we say…
and to whom?

Would we sprinkle words of love a little freer
before we pass this way

A moment of promise comes 
to those who take time
to stop and smell the roses

once or twice, but still

Petals fragrant and soft
of pure hues delights those
who pursue its delicate form

The rose is full of...Read More

Imagine
Imagine the sound of bright buzzing bees,
And ripe juicy apples planted on trees.

Bird in a guilded cage, a broken heart, a solitary soul
Road less travelled, a soul full of longing, my heart bleeds
On a wing and a prayer, my heart is a lonely hunter, a weary soul

God's Gift To Humanity
God gave us a gift

His paintbrush was never put down 
He was thinking of you and me....Read More

Have you ever had your breath taken away?

A moment where nothing else seemed to matter?

When the earth stopped revolving and your heart began spinning out of control?

Have you ever stood still and wondered why the others kept moving?

They were caught...Read More

If only there was some way I could see what they see

Speeding along life's highway
With the scenery flashing by
Must stop and smell the roses

Subtleties that mean so much

The warmth of a babies touch

A gentle breeze at daybreak

I sit calmly in the state of shock, disgusted by my generation.

Precious life that so many struggle to have, kicked aside like a soccer ball.

This is the case'
Our bodies and life depends on this life staple.
We continue in being un-rational, we are un-capable.
Rational thinking should be our way.

A Memorable Person
On a train going south on business
For what seemed an eternity,
I chanced upon a memorable man
Who changed the path of my destiny

He was itinerant to look at
With tatty coat and shabby shoes,
An unshaven face, his hair unkempt
And string, as a...Read More
