Fortunate are we that there are poets among us! Surges from the poet's heart capsule moments of intense feeling, stir our emotions, evoke memories, call forth powerful images, and make us desire the Ultimate - something beyond ourselves. Gentle fancies of the artist capture realities that we ourselves have felt but had no words for. In a time when nothing is shocking, nothing is expected to last, when we have seen it all, heard it all, felt it all, we feel the freshness of hope - and of love. Read, enjoy, and be blessed!
