Descrizione

This book of poetry reflects my thoughts about God, my own personal journey, as well as reflections on the world at large. The preface of this book gives my reason for writing this special piece of work. Poetry takes time, much reflection, and lots of energy, especially when the reflections express the inner workings of the Holy Spirit in ones life.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Special thanks to my family and those people in my life who had such great faith in me. Special thanks to Sr. Elaine Frederick, OSP for editing this book of poetry.

DEDICATED

To my family and friends whose faith in me

has spurred me on to write this book of poetry.

PREFACE

Writing poetry, for me is a wonderful release of energy. It eases stress and connects me with that inner peace which builds tranquility of spirit. Writing is not so much about words but using words to formulate energy to speak to the soul and keep one in one’s essence.

May all who read these pages find a poem that lifts their spirit, make them laugh or make them pause and reflect.

I thank God and the Holy Spirit for giving me the ability to pen my thoughts in poetry. Some write journals, I chose to write my journal through the art of poetry.

Wisdom

(Blank Verse)

Wisdom

can be possessed

by anyone

who has faith in God,

a firm belief

in providence

and

deep trust.

Wisdom

is not afforded

only to the

elderly.

Give God Glory

(Free Verse)

Glorify

the Lord

every moment

of every day.

Praise

God in every way.

Thank

the Lord

for graces

and blessings

sent our

way.

We Christians

(Free Verse)

Many of us call ourselves Christians,

Yet when elections come we wonder.

People of integrity, or so we believed

Do some strange and irrational blunders.

Some will lie and tarnish another

We say things that mislead others.

Foes become friends for Party sake,

But really cannot tolerate the sister or brother.

Most will do and condone anything,

Just to obtain that single vote or two.

Haters come out of hiding expressing,

How they really feel about others view.

There must be a better way

To gain votes for one’s Party sheet,

Without character assassination

Putting others dirty linens in the street.

All know what the Good Book says

That everyone is equal in God’s sight.
