    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

  • Poem: Her Lovely Smile

    Poem: Her Lovely Smile

    Her lovely smile has the power to compel poetry. At an age 17 years younger, she’s Mukti Masih – a published poetess, author and successful content writer from India. After a recent exchange, I wrote this poem as I drifted into a daydream

    Every time I see her smile
    Heaven shines a light on me
    Happy heart in sweet delight
    Chasing dreams of what could be
    
       On the rhythm of waves
       Rang a sound from her heart
       Where the waters of love
       Know no end, only start
    
       On a ship under sail
       Without map, simply stars
       And a warm summer breeze
       With acoustic guitars
    
       On a course to the east
       Currents carry and flow
       Is this only a dream?
       Perhaps, yes, I think so
    
    Were it not for many miles
    And the years, so far apart
    Both day and night - time to share
    Grand adventures of the heart

  • Poem About A Writer

    Poem About A Writer

    I have a friend who is a gifted & imaginative writer. She also is often a source of inspiration for me to write poetry, including the following…

    She Writes From The Heart

    Putting pen to paper she writes
    Words flow from her creative mind
    Imagination without limitation
    Always, one of a kind.

    From deep in her heart, filled with love
    Her life experiences teach
    With wisdom and inspiration
    She shares advice but doesn’t preach.

    A humble woman with courage
    She’ll tell you to believe
    She knows the best is yet to come
    Her goals set to achieve.

    I’m so grateful to call her friend
    Yet sometimes my heart skips a beat
    Her eyes and face, so beautiful
    And precious soul, so sweet.

    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.

    Do You Speak Portuguese? I don’t, but I have a friend from Portugal who is an aspiring writer with a Google Translate button in the sidebar – she is Carla Milho.

    I encourage you to visit her site and follow her work! She’s an honest, truthful person who writes from the heart with sincerity and passion, following her dreams through engaging, life-experience discussions of ambition and goal-setting, an appeal to self-improvement, cautious tales of deleterious external influences, the value of family and friendships & other points of interest.
