    Poem in Response

    Having read “Let Me Sing You a Lullaby” by the talented and beautiful Californian poetess, Annabel – wherein she recounts an appreciation of kindness, love and guidance, as received through the song of an angel – I was inspired to write this poem…

    Like a message in a bottle
    Sealed with a kiss and set adrift
    Words flow from your heart, so lovely
    – poetic bliss, shared as a gift

    Time is Precious

    Time is precious
    It’s of the essence
    It’s here, then gone
    From adolescence

    The time you have
    And the time you take
    The things you’ve done
    And the plans you make
    The sights you’ve seen
    Now a memory
    And what’s to come
    Yet a fantasy

    Time marches on
    Though nary a sound
    Hands on the wall
    Each day spin around

    Time is fleeting
    Take note and behold
    Lessons in life
    With age, growing old

    Make your time count
    To be a good friend
    Share happiness
    And love to the end

    Saying Goodbye To A Ghost

    Simple themes on a canvas –
    on the wind, a transient cloth
    Like a dream or ghost in my heart.

    A weight of emotional scale –
    From equilibrium, light rises to dissipate
    An apparition of appreciable bearing.

    In likeness absent chamber –
    A transcendent mirage, untimely and apart
    Goodbye my beautiful little ghost.
