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




Tiny soldiers of honesty

Sit upon the windows of our souls

Shutter flashes of our past

Infuse our current thoughts

Today another moment

A window glass of notions

Long-ago travels into current time

A kaleidoscope of rotations

Views our unforeseen future

A glimpse of unknown candor

Spectacles of mindless chatter

Ensconce our fruitless hours

That convene upon our numbered days.
