A garden of poetry to impress and inspire. A bouquet from me and some of my favorite poets. Most of these poems are decidedly Christian. Some simply carry the fragrance of Christs' character. Be blessed!

Something Good Inside of Me
When something bad happens to me I want to find the good in me. I want to say good things to others, To do good things, love all brothers. I want to think good thoughts and know That Jesus Christ will help me grow. He works to make the bad to be Something good inside of me.
Here in Florida the weather is starting to heat up! It is in the 80s pretty steadily now and it will be creeping upwards into the 90s soon. Here is a poem I wrote about the sun and the different way it affects me. Hope you are having a nice spring!
I like it best when the sun does not blaze across the sky crowding out the deepness of the blue and beating down on the helpless earth like a tyrant commanding attention and invading the universe; or when its heat weighs heavy on my shoulders, stifles my breath, closes my eyes and pushes me to lie down and sleep; But when the sky is wide and free and I feel as if I could rise up and fly, soaring and playing in the air; or when the sun reigns with mercy, allowing the sky to compliment her beauty and permit the white puffy clouds to dance in her presence and a soft cool breeze is allowed to brush the earth with blessing as it sings a soft melody to refresh and uplift the heart, I like it best.
This poem is my latest. I have written it for the 40th class reunion of the 1969 Class of Pueblo County High School. Go Hornets!
The years have lain like a barren plain between us. Though our singular lives have walked through wonderful changes and sometimes frightening challenges, we have not kept company with friends long ago invited into our dreams, loves, heartaches, and triumphs. Yet, in that desert our memories, like tumbleweeds, have rolled through our minds, beckoning us with curious wonderings of who we became, what we have done, where we have traveled. In those brief recollections we remembered the beginning of our journeys and have looked forward to this celebratory return. Today is our long awaited future. Today our present becomes our new commencement: a time to enjoy past remembrances and embrace the memories of this reunion for future exchanges. Today we return to the place we hold in each others’ lives.
