The taste of death
lingers in the memory of the living,
when love dies slowly,
the heart withers upon the vine.
Bitterness as the tears
shed on a Spring morning,
leading to sunny Summer days,
persisting into crisp Autumn nights.
The demise of all
lies in a Winter's midnight,
chilled to the bone in no embrace,
unless hearts are open to true love.
As wide as the sky
as big as forever is forever needed,
or even the seasons
will not change man's thinking.

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
