Since the moment I held a pencil I've been creating with drawings and words. I believe paintings enlighten and poems entice our audiences.

The Outdoors

We call them wonders of the world and understandably so when we look out at nature in all its amazing glory. Take that walk each day to soak in the scents, warmth, and energetic refreshment of the outdoors.

The Great Outdoors

Soft whispers of cotton clouds

Entice the skies above

Colorful in their majestic stance

Peaceful as an inner spirit

They dance above the mountain-tops

Binoculars to a scenic view.

A chime is heard throughout the herd

Animals interpret their valuable words

They watch like owls in hawkish manners

A cue to rummage to guarded stances

To protect, honor, and cherish

The breath of life they hold so dear.

The mosaic patterns of rocks

Stand rigid along a protective front

Like soldiers ready to guard their land

To shelter various varieties of patrons

From furry to reptilian to aviators in flight

Through the repetitious seasons of time.

The air is crisp in scented delights

A breeze so soft escapes on by

A brush of sensory wonder

Tranquility captures each strand of fiber

Nature in its natural magnificence

A known truth, which man can never imitate

A known truth, which man can never replace.
