Coming January 1st – my new eBook: Morning to Morning.

Downloads will be free for the first 7 days!!! Mark your calendars. Checkout the preface of the book typed below:

Morning to Morning is a book of haikus paired with photos. The pairings capture precious moments of reflection throughout major stages of the day. I speak of peace, murky worlds, pain, happy days, great lunches, thoughts at breakfast, sweet anticipation, road travels and much more. Join me as I take you on a remarkable journey from morning to morning.

 

Notes on Title Fighting

NOTES ON TITLE FIGHTING

in the middle
of one serious
challenge

to my pursuit
of success as i
follow my dreams

i finally stopped crying
i finally stopped complaining
i finally stopped sleeping
i finally stopped stressing

must change my pace
in the ring
must step back
lay on the ropes
and let opposition swing

let opposition swing
while i cover my head
let opposition swing
while i take blows to muscle
let opposition swing
while i deflect with strong arms

let opposition swing
while i stay on the ropes

and wait…

for my day, my hour, my minute, my moment, my round

 

“Notes On Title Fighting” and many other poems can be read in “Good Morning New Year”
