books

there was a time
when the book
did not exist

perhaps in the
writer’s heart and
mind

yet still the process
to create for others
to read in some form

there was a time
when the reader
did not know

the book exists
yet once found
is read and reread

treasured forever
among many books

my coffee gets cold

Some day I hope to create a book with my poems for the language arts.

There is a nice selection of Flower Images at Reusable Art.

Poems To Share

You are welcome to reprint my poems with proper credit. Ideas include bulletin boards in classrooms, libraries, hospitals, nursing homes – places where a short poem may be an encouragement to someone or help with a poetry lesson. Thank you.

September
on the horizon
all the goals
I can still
try to reach

books on the shelf
supported by each other
kindness of friends
