An EKPHRASTIC is a poem that tells about a painting or photograph so as to describe it visually–no particular form.
I wrote this poem to describe my grand-son’s first mixtape cover which was drawn by my grand-daughter.

Word Power

Life. Death.
The difference
Is often a thin thread
That one careless word could snap and break.
Caution
Needed.
Be very careful when speaking words.
They have power to change life
For better or worse.
Choose wisely.

:) Smile!

Smiling Sun

 

There’s power in a smile
To chase a frown away.
It will uplift a gloomy spirit,
And cheer up someone’s day!

We all have one we can use,
So let’s put it on for those we meet.
It costs nothing to wear,
And it’s beauty can’t be beat!
