This column is dedicated to one of the highest art forms in the sphere of human communication—Poetry. Nothing is nobler than the expression of human emotion. All poetry is perfect, no matter what the format or the background of the poet. A voice is a voice. With poetry, you get more than words. You get rhythm, you get sound, you get silence, you get mood—you get emotion. What more can you ask? This column is also dedicated to all the people who have ever lived, those here now, and those yet to come. God bless the poets among you. They carry the soul of the world.

Growing Roses

Growing Roses - They say the journey is better than the destination. Along the way, the unexpected may occur--love can find you.


The joy I found but did not seek

Was greater than the joy I planned,

A gift of life that crossed my path

Different than my own design

But more interesting in many ways,

I will savor the moments with her

In contentment and laughter,

Growing roses in our garden
