Words can be like flowers

Placed tenderly in between

The objects of love’s power

Listen to what they mean


Give them your full attention

Hear all of their heart’s dreams

Your ear will bring them ease

Be present to relieve tension


Like water flowing to purify

We can make each other shine

There’s no real need to justify

Healing will come in good time


Let’s elevate our conversations

Make them times to transform

This can heal the world’s nations

Of this, I am most sure

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
