A Timeless Poem

I have been threatening to write my first song in 35 years and I am hoping to record it by August 1. As you might know if you’ve checked out a few blogs, we are leaving our beloved Arizona behind to move to southern Ohio to be closer to my wife’s family. So needless to say, I have been busy getting this house sold and setting the table to buy what most likely will be our last home.

Our needs are few: ½ acre lot, 3BR 2BA wood-burning fireplace, pool, and fenced yard. Oh yeah, and hardwood floors. And mature trees on the lot.

I’ll keep you posted.

Check out my latest poem:


Sunrays through trees

Racing to damp places

Representing what comes next

Friendship, manufactured family

Earlier the better

The warmth of the sunshine as you allow it in with

The Smile

The garden you could never grow

Swimming in flowers and bathing in their perfume

Monet would be proud

Your first child’s smile

Trusting, dependent

Your soulmate, One True Love

Unconditional, temporary, unimaginable




Smoke-filled lungs begging stewardship

New generations smarting from lessons learned

Memories jockeying

Currying favor


I just got done watching Sea Biscuit starring Toby McGuire. I love that movie. As long as there are synapses still firing, I will emote and experience a gamut of emotions.

A timeless poem is one I can read over and over again and feel differently each time I do.

I hope you like it.

Stay well.
