From Learning to Live Again (Unpublished)

I continue to be encouraged By the responses I'm getting To my poetry page On Facebook Perhaps it is merely My ego talking But the comments and likes Keep pouring in Of course I'm trying to sell books And so far success is elusive But I have created a brand There is a growing circle [...]

From Learning to Live Again (unpublished 2017)

I'm still searchingĀ  For answers To unasked questions And continued confusions Crossroads again And always As I enter new Horizons I'm unwilling to let go Of hopes and dreams By settling for the safety Of comfortable surroundings At least until I know That what I truly deserve Is not within my reach As this journey [...]

From “Learning to Live Again” (unpublished)

My existentialism has taken holdĀ  As I find that I am retreating Further and further Into myself I understand my need For self-preservation As well as the necessity To break free of my own trappings Nobody can possibly understand What I am experiencing And if I try to explain I seem to find resistance I [...]

My Walk – From “Learning to Live Again”, unpublished 2017

Sometimes my walk is perfect Like today When the songs of my youth Can touch me once again And they remind me Of a different time When we were all searching Though clouds got in our way And it took me to that time Innocent and free When we actually cared And tried to make [...]

Random Thoughts from Volume 4 “Testing Love”

Not afraid of death It's dying I fear So I take each breath Happy to be here *************************** In touch with how I feel And unafraid to share Understanding it is real And mine alone to bear **************************** Feeling happy and sad At the same time Doesn't make me mad For these moments are sublime [...]

Book 5 “Learning to Live Again” – Wondering Where Time Went

Wondering where the time went As it is now my enemy For the youthfulness I feel Is betrayed by the number Life is about love and fear And now I live in fear For love and health have betrayed me And rearranged everything Each day is a challenge But each day has its rewards As [...]

The First Song I Wrote – Still Rings True Today

I was in college over 50 years ago when I picked up the guitar. It was the era of the singer-songwriter, led of course by Bob Dylan. This is the first song I wrote and it still rings true to me today. Where is my direction I don't know Should I make corrections I don't [...]

From “Learning to Live Again”, to be published 2017

I'm now realizing How lost I am And how appropriate The word is I've lost strength Vitality and sexuality A sense of invulnerability And friends along the way And I've lost my path A sense of purpose A view of tomorrow And someone to share it with But I'm understanding That finding my way Out [...]

From the prologue to Book 5 “Learning to Live Again”, to be published sometime in the future.

"Finding Love" was published in November of 2015 and "Testing Love" in August of 2016.

I realized, however, that the story of the end would [...]

From “Learning to Live Again” to be published late 2017

Like the sky's colors At day's end So too must we face Each day's new wonder Be it a challenge A surprise Or a burden to bear We must rise to its calling Delay is not an option As plans must be in place To clear the path Towards the future we own
