The very word itself is inspiring; it conjures up in my mind a world of infinite wonders that I can only marvel at.  Wonders that my head remind me that nature does not revolve around me, but around a vast universe of possibility.  For whether I acknowledge it or not, Mother Nature and all her diverse energies will continue to exist long after I have evaporated into the sand of earthly time.  She will continue to vibrate at her own frequency ever evolving and enhancing her beauty until she metamorphosis into the star she is meant to be.

The poems and writings on this site and within my books are purposely simple and are meant as building blocks to deeper thoughts (yours not mine).  They are reminders of things that in time have been overlooked or forgotten.

Please accept these little ramblings as signposts to the world you might have left behind in the innocence of yesterday

Narcissus

I am the most beautiful
You have ever seen
For I am like a vision.
You once met in a dream
A dance of pure perfection
A light that shines and glows
For nothing in my makeup
Would tread upon your toes
I could be in a painting
To hang upon your wall
Where people could survey me
And find no fault at all
For I am like a flower
That brightens up the spring
So bathe within my portrait
That my faultless ego brings

ST FRANCIS

YOU HELD MY HAND SO TIGHTLY
AS WE STROLLED ALONG
YOU TAUGHT ME HOW TO LISTEN
TO ALL OF NATURES SONGS
EACH LITTLE BIRD THAT WARBLED
AND SANG ITS OWN REFINE
DID PRAISE YOUR VERY BEING
WITHIN EACH NOTE IT CLAIMED
THE INSECTS ALL AROUND YOU
DID DANCE AND DANCE WITH GLEE
TO THINK THAT ONE SO PRECIOUS
WOULD CAST HIS EYES ON THEE
THE MOUNTAINS SPREAD THEIR BEAUTY
IN EVER CHANGING SHADE
AS THROUGH THE HILLS WE WANDERED
BY STREAM AND LEAFY GLADE
THE VIEWS THEY LEFT ME BREATHLESS
SO I WOULD STAND AND STARE
WHILE GATHERED ALL AROUND US
EACH LIVING THING WAS THERE
YOU TAUGHT MY EYES TO SEE THINGS
ONCE HIDDEN FROM MY SIGHT
SO THANK YOU MY SWEET FRANCIS
FOR SHOWING ME NATURES LIGHT

Thought to Ponder- Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love.Francis of Assisi

I have a firm belief in angels and feel them around me all of the time, especially when I need an extra bit of help in making decisions

Also, as I get older, I have a much better appreciation of the beauty of Mother Nature and enjoy nothing more than to sit in my garden and let her overwhelm me with her many gifts

The poems and writings on this website are reflections of my thoughts on various subjects, as they wander through my mind
