In Adelaide, the ashes of a man
Pass for what he was. In Somerset,
A few friends gather round a fire
In a fold of the Brendon Hills. After the storm
The Brave One
The Brave One
Into me I see the troubles from within
I don't like coffee. It's too bitter.
But I buy it sometimes in the summer.
The cold kind.
The one that comes in the clear plastic cup,
The Hall of Mirrors prepared for signature of the Versailles Peace Treaty on 28 June 1919 by Leopold Delbeke
I never imagined that painting to be a footnote
underscoring history – it was an afterthought.
In a brilliant white room
Stands a white piano
Sudden Yellow Clouds
Recapture a day when
summer brushed our skin
golden, when the sky
bloomed a brief, intellectual blue.
Still for you this nameless feeling
Makes a fool of my intelligence
For I am unable to comprehend
Love, more then emotion
It's description overly used being abused
Yet it's true meaning remains
Eternal & long suffering
What It's Not
It's not a feeling it's an ache
So intense at times it becomes a pain
Stripping me of the ability to be selfish
I become selfless, thinking of you first, always
Tears shed, his presence missed
Yet mingled with joyful streams
A life bursting, every moment experienced
Well beyond his three score and ten
