Moments in Time

Long ago, there stood a moment in time
that we shall all remember knowing
a moment shall come around again

Moments of laughter, of joyous times
with one another as the children played
we all came together - as one

Younger days, growing and longing as
we dreamed of life that shall be laid out
before us - our destiny - our fate

Memories of friends that shared thoughts
of our new homes around us, the planting of
seeds that grew and nurtured our families

Knowing deep in our hearts, we shall
come around again as we passed
through our own moments of time -

we remember those along the way

An Email...


Heard from a friend just the other day
I received an email and it began to say -

I found you while on my couch laying
you're all over the place, it was saying

Call or email when you can -

A Poet's Mirage ~


The movement of the free hand
glides across the page knowing
time and again moments of a
new calling will come before thee

Weary at times wanting to rest
driven to complete a memory,
a thought or feeling before it is
lost in an afternoon’s frenzy

The movement of the free hand
captures forever a lasting expression
nurturing with care not to wavier the
momentum of what is real to the mind

Weary at times wanting to sleep
away the words heard within,
to sweep them under a pillow
of dreams, praying to drift into –

a poet’s mirage of perfection

In My Dreams ~

I dream of open fields
where the young run free,
not fettered by concrete
and enclosed spaces.

I dream of green fields
where children breathe clean air,
not stained by smoke spewing
factories and gray skyscrapers.

I dream of uncluttered fields
where youth play baseball,
not hindered by gang infested
streets and violence.

I dream of natural fields
where kids pick wildflowers,
not hampered by littered
alleys and windowless rooms.

I dream of God’s fields
where children remain innocent,
not plagued with images
that can destroy young lives.

Expressions is proud to feature poet -

One Bite at a Time...

Success within the spirit
brings one closer to dreams and goals -

With changes deep inside the structure
He is guiding the lifestyle movement -

to a new me, come a hot August night!
