Meet the Author

My soul said: “Hi, it’s about time. Let’s share.”
And we did. This book is the sharing.

My soul is patient.
It sits in a majestic chair,
waiting to be recognized.

Every now and then,
sometimes more, sometimes less,
in a moment of serene silence,
I sit majestically in its lap,
in a peaceful rapture.

Every now and then,
in a moment of august pain
bellowing on my knees eternity’s cry,
I reach out in desperation
and the hands of soul
envelop me.

I meet the pain in trust,
in a peaceful rapture.
