"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."

2006

music plays in my memory
a cool evening breeze whispers
water laps the shore somewhere in the distance of time I hear
the owl in the woods
the echo of your words
the sound of my heartbeat

2005

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real!

2004

If you attend a church meeting
without fear of harassment,
arrest, torture, or death,
you are more blessed than almost
three billion people in the world.

2003

little water fights
giggling and running
later speed in the night
frustrations
and aggravations
unfairness and wonderment

2002

I should say no thoughts because sleep claimed me early, but yet there were dreams, dreams of things twisted and turned to where there was no meaning, or reason.

2001

dreams of better
hopes of neither
tears of silence
retest of resilience

2000

The morning dawns
a sad and gray shade
mists of rain and memories
dampen the spirit and crush the heart

As the daylight announces another
day of survival, living alone
questions cloud the mind as the sky
feelings of the past fight for dominance

Surrender of fight
Is the question asked by early light
yesterday haunts, teases
no answer for what pleases

The emotions of the heart

1999

Wine fills the glass
Red for the blood
and
White for the soul

1998

oh blah
working to much and not enough rest,
tired
sleepy
blank expressions in motion

1997

The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.
