Light, a Book of Poems

Posted on | May 14, 2018 | Comments Off on Light, a Book of Poems

Light, a Book of Poems is my 2nd book of poetry and my 24th book. I don’t call myself a poet, at least not in the traditional sense, as you are taught in English class. I simply let emotions find words to tell their stories and write them on the page. Here is one of them:


Flames of hot orange shoot
to earth
streaking the wide land with
a new morning as
birds begin their songs of praise
flap their wings
soar wildly.
Be free –
they teach.
Today is another chance.

Keep the pen moving,
