Glorious

I believe I saw a sphinx. He stretched over his heels  eyes transfixed at a door, mine also I stood in front of it It had hieroglyphs on it here I could understand it and it read; “The volatile prose of a poet’s hand is dead.” When I looked back, the creature was gone like […]

Celebration of life

    Encoré The magnificent stage light illuminates Each day the theatre curtains raise but the show isn’t forever     I know they played their lives well for even the people who did not know them sang genuinely of their kindness     I envy their peace they fulfilled their purpose and now a […]
