Poetic Art - Poem Title: "Deep Blue"
A poem about sensing a homeland within.



Excerpt:

"The sun set sank in vermilion and gold
It's rays dimming under orange violet folds
The wind blew cold each summer night
The wide plains wheat were like clouds of light

Roasted nuts and seasoned fish
Sweet melon cuts on an oiled dish
Deep blue and cool the water would be
I was of it. It was of me.
The land. The sky and the deep blue sea..."

Poetic Art - Poem Title: "Finding Our Way Back Home"
A family dedication poem about the joys, values and
 lessons learned when reuniting with family.



Excerpt:

"Somehow by grace and providence
we've arrived to fall upon the bosom of all our family.

To kiss warm faces and wipe the tears
of joy from cheeks cracked and dimpled by time.
We found our way back home. We found our way back home.

By some miracle we all stand and look around and are reminded that ours is a union resilient and empowered by years of congealed tears of joy, love and sorrow.

Braced by our own blood, comforted by our own songs we labor to find our way home
We found our way back home..."

Poetic Art - Poem Title: "Legends Live Among Us"
A poem about everyday people who touch our lives and 
sometimes seem almost heaven sent.



Excerpt:

"They are not angels or messengers from above.
But by their deeds and words the message is delivered.

They are not giants.
But when they speak one knows they have walked among them.

They are not Lords or granted Knighthood.
For their estate, stature and loyalties are of a higher purpose..."

Poetic Art - Poem Title: "We Rise To Tell The Story"
A poem about fond memories and important lessons that seem only 
relived at family reunions.



Excerpt:

"When we struggle to remember their words once spoken and almost forgotten and suddenly there they are
stealing the scene and teaching us now what we could not understand then we rise to tell their story.

When we visit the old homestead
and smell the sweet smells, touch the textures and turn the corner to a room full of memories our hearts quicken to revive and relive moments long forgotten and in an instant their very lives are rewritten on ours
we rise to tell their story..."

Poetic Art - Poem Title: "This You Gave To Me"
A poem of gratitude for the gifts bestowed upon us by a 
family of mentors.



Excerpt:

"When I did not believe I could keep going,where did I get the assurance
that if I did not give up,
give out or give in I would succeed?
This you gave me

When I felt an overwhelming failure
Where did I get the confidence
that I had what I needed to shape
bend and grow into what I have become and yet will be?
This you gave me..."
