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.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving - In this life, nothing is promised, nothing is sure. The fact that someone is born may inspire gratitude.


The place I stand is mine alone
The breath I draw is mine alone
A body to use for a lifetime
Created by another
There is no more
There is no less
That is enough
I am grateful
