Winter is quite cold
Bundle up or you will freeze
Cold weather at last

Story Lady (poem)

There’s a very special lady, a person that I know
Who tells a funny story wherever she may go
She speaks to you so softly with a smile upon her lips
As she relates to you a tale, not a word of it she skips
She speaks to you of ministers of maidens and of men
Who made a few mistakes with their words now and then
Her stories are told with wit and with such charm
You know as a listener they really mean no harm
‘Tis a very special lady this person that I know
Who tells a funny story wherever she may go

Stuff of success (poem)

As you move on and advance your career
You’ll no doubt forget many things you left here.
To help you remember and never forget
Here is a list of those most common
Which I know you’ll return to and remember often
Computer codes hidden in dark obscure places
Changing door codes that keep out strange faces
Furloughs and shut downs and no more pay raises
Old friends and bosses all trapped in their places
With policies, programs, and rules so restrictive
The only thing positive are client’s creative
Through sadness and sorrow you’ve weathered the storm
With keen wit and humor you’ve kept trudging on
But for good friends, music and the lack of TV
You might not have made it this far don’t you see
So keep up the courage good humor and friends
And success will come easy to you in the end

Ground Control to the One We Trust!

We are all passengers on this planet Earth
A spaceship traveling through time and space
This journey we travel from the time of our birth
We seek to understand, - this life we embrace

Using our natural senses, we seek to define reality
This search is all a part of our lives as we travel
Though we live our lives with much abnormality
Life in itself, - is a mystery we all seek to unravel

We meet with resistance for it is in our nature
Questioning our neighbor is the way of our behavior
Those living in an entirely different culture
We are unaware of the fact - that we share the same
Savior

Creeds, laws, beliefs, of all sorts - we choose to live by
As we travel our course the journey may be simple or get
Rough
When all goes well we are lifted - and in him - we may defy

War + Lives - add Love = Freedom

A nation born from war, for the “purpose” of establishing freedom
A nation divided in war, in an “attempt” to fulfill the goal of freedom
A nation engaged in world wars, in the task of “preserving” freedom
A nation policing the world, in the “pursuit” of freedom

So many young lives have been lost, for the “cause” of freedom
Let us remember those who paid the “ultimate price, ” for freedom
And dear God, please tell us! - “What! ” - is freedom?
“Life is to be lived, not controlled, and humanity is won by continuing
To play in face of certain defeat.” Ralph Ellison

'We need not war'

We need not war, to show us how freedom is made
What we need is love to show us how freedom is played.
For freedom is not - but to “do as we please”
But rather to “please others” - because of what we achieve
“To serve requires love, only with love to we attain freedom”

A Thought For 9/11 (poem)

What was accomplished with the destruction on that fatal day?
These acts of terrorism from those who claim - to God they pray

No different are we - who choose to retaliate with hate
For to add to the killing, the only thing gained is the mortality rate

To fight evil with evil - the only victor is the devil
Do not! - make us stoop to his level

The lack the courage, to speak from our hearts what we truly feel
Showing love and compassion - is the only way a nation can heel

I believe the Lord said - “love thy neighbor“- not - do as
Thy neighbor
To receive respect we must earn it - by the ways of our behavior

Courage is not to show the world the creature we truly are not
It is to be the true American that lives within us - which so
Many have forgot

The completion at last (poem)

We were once only the embryo, implanted with faith
Cultivated from ideas, some old - and some new
Nourished with a desire - to seek our fate
Beginning to flourish - from dreams, left - from the cool
Morning dew-

If we survive the drought in the summer, of prejudice
And hate,
Where lack of love - threatens to cut us down, - like an
Unwanted weed

Providing winter’s cold heart, - doesn’t uproot us in war,
Only to fill - it’s own selfish plate.
Then perhaps- the following season, will bring us the
Promise -we so desperately need

For spring may bring us warm hearts, to expose our
Unstable petals, to a whole new light,
With April’s tears of remorse, for discrimination, and
Ignorance, which, created such gloom

A thought for 9/11 (poem)

What was accomplished with the destruction on that fatal day?
Another false ideology by those who claim to God they pray

No different than hypocrites in this country who respond with hate
To add to the killing, the only thing gained is the mortality rate

Why don’t people have the courage, to speak what they feel?
To follow ones heart - is the only way a nation can heal

I believe the Lord said - love thy neighbor, not - do as thy neighbor
To receive respect we must earn it with the ways of our behavior

What is real and what is unreal - two different words but the same Meaning
For what we are, is not our true being, but a result of what society is Demanding

Courage is not to show the world the creature you truly are not
It is to be the true American that lives within you - which so many have Forgot

(I relied on the motto of a childhood hero of mine before writing this poem)
Davy Crockett said, “When you know your right, go ahead”

War + Lives add Love = Freedom

Remembered

A nation born from war, for the “purpose” of establishing freedom
A nation divided in war, in an “attempt” to fulfill the goal of freedom

A nation engaged in world wars, in the task of “preserving” freedom
A nation policing the world, in the “pursuit” of freedom

So many young lives have been lost, for the “cause” of freedom
Let us remember those who paid the “ultimate price, ” for freedom

And dear God, please tell us! - “What! ” - is freedom?

Happiness dwells in the soul (poem)

“Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, ”
“The feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.” Aristotle Wise
words from a wise philosopher

What stirs up the soul, to warm the heart, and sets the spirit free?
Is it baby’s first word, - a promotion at work, or just to be - little ole
Me?
Some of us are in search of a world of perceptual bliss
However, here on Earth this world just simply does not exist

Along with the good times, we must learn to live with the bad
Living to make a wrong, right, a feeling of happiness we
Magically add

To turn a hopeless frown, into a new awaking smile,
Is when you discover a solution, which needs to be nourished
With a walk - of an additional mile

Do not look at your brother and see, - All of the external bad
Look inside to see - all of the good, - this is what will make you
