Landmarks



“Amen to Love”

Things change
And people’s views change with them
What was unthinkable yesterday
Is confirmed by law today
Just love who you want
Give God the glory
And all will work out
In the end

The Game of Jeopardy! in Haiku

First round Jeopardy
The clues easier
My responses right

Double Jeopardy
Tougher stuff I need to know
Will I buzz in first?

The Daily Doubles
Seeking to find hidden gems
And earn more money

Final Jeopardy
Wagering right is crucial
Don't act like Clavin!

"The Tide"

The pain of loss
is like the tides
it ebbs and flows
throughout our days
sometimes we think
it's getting bearable
but always it returns
at an all-time high
and crashes against us
with hurricane force

PTSD

A broken soldier
Torn apart in times of war
Fighting her way back

More Haikus

Writing poetry
Helps to keep the blues away
On winter mornings


Been working so hard
To leave the past behind me
Wish someone would help
