For My Sister

Born are we of the same womb from our mother. Known all my life I have years now been a brother. I know your pursuit of that which would define the things you are are things no one has inside. Pride and confident will, you exemplify perfection inside our aging minds you are a better…

Three Generations Together

Generations apart together making precious memories. Surreal such a scene is my grandmother and my niece. A mother who raised five children of her own sits next to a great-granddaughter and calm gentleness exists. So much of the world that my grandmother has seen is translated to beautiful scenes such as you now see.

My eyes have beheld such glorious sights. Peaks atop mountains; beaches during night. Seen the galaxy have I beyond stars. Pondered have I…

Step Into My World
