I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world,
to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

Some of these poems are autobiographical, some are entirely fictional, and some are a mixture of both. The intention is art rather than self-expression. I don't allow factual details to get in the way of poetry! (I do seek emotional truth.) They are works in progress, and may be subject to revision without notice. Completed versions appear in my books. Nevertheless copyright applies to all texts found here. Copyright also applies to almost all photos posted here, most of which are my own, though a few are licensed under Creative Commons.
Thank you for your comments. I read and appreciate them all, and reply here to specific points that seem to need it — or as I have the leisure. Otherwise I reciprocate by reading and commenting on your blog posts as much as possible.

The Psychic

Many have changed my life.
You are the latest.
Messenger of the Universe,
with simple words
you reconnected me to my Spirit.
I knew at once you spoke truth.

With a hug that touched my heart,
and with your smile,
you blessed me.
I saw a sweet reflection in your eyes,
and I was thankful.
Thank you.

Day 28 - Someone that changed your life


  1. How often we meet them, and are affected by their goodness...but never get the chance to acknowledge or may not even be aware of their impact on us. I'm glad you took this opportunity to write about someone who obviously helped or influenced you in a meaningful way. It's important for us to stop and note the gentle souls who are simply good to us.

    Thank you, peace,

  2. A gentle soul who was simply good to me - yes, that's exactly so!

    And indeed, you are another.
