God’s Children Preview for 2020

This book is intended to show awareness around Childrens’ various extraordinary ways, talents and unique way. My daughter’s goal of drawing multiple fairies and different attributes is so readers can understand that all children are gifts, magic and marvelous, in addition to having their own individuality.

Make a Gift for our Book

My daughter, Dahlia, will be contributing her precious illustrations for my Children's Book set to print in 2020. My daughter will be adding her 30 highly detailed illustrations for my 30 poems, to make a 60 page book (our goal)!! This is just a glimpse at some of her illustrations. I am hoping for participants so we can print this book . I hope to print these illustrations in color format and my poems in black and white for a hard cover book and the printing cost's are a bit staggering for color images AND a hard cover book. You the Participant: The first few pages of the book will be designated for the names of those who made gifts. In the end, I think those who gave will be happy to know they were a part of it all. Thank you for considering to make a gift for our Children's Book!

Nature Sonnet

To follow nature,
we hold our children’s
hand to God’s door.
As this all matures,
with the weeping willow
and the joy in heart flowers,
we brush the Yellow Poplar.
To find the green showing

its vastness. Beginning,
with the greenhouse
to the color painted orchards,
the sun dances around
and the moon a time chart.
It is here, I say, Amen.

Dance

The leaves are dancing
hundreds are twirling
colored clothes and coats –

Our Divine Lord’s Host.
The fountain is clapping
and lightly tapping –

The summer or fall
it’s a sequence ball.
The bird’s ivory down
toe to toe with earth’s gown

The Day

This rising sun has begun –
God gives allotted space
to fulfill his will and grace.

Some ache in sadness
Some tremor with stress
A minute’s headdress,
while others kindness –

In all of this holy moment –
to reduce the dark to pigment,
this here an instrument.

In this house of optics
a fashioned lament.
