Feel the Strength

Contemplating love and faith…

   Feel the Strength

When just a baby
I could feel the strength he had
Never been maybe

   -gl-

Some worries along the way, and some faltering steps, but always up and onward…

The Old Man

Contemplating the circle of life…

   The Old Man

He’s young strong and fit
Primed to surpass the old man
In just a wee bit

   -gl-

Life goes on…

Stepping Up

Contemplating the struggles of life…

   Stepping Up

Only just begun
Babes toddle. Men Struggle on
Son turned twenty one

Come into his own
Stepping up to toe the line
I see that he’s grown

   -gl-

Life is good…

Every Day

Inspired by a son grown…

   Every Day

Waking every day
Proving himself every day
Yes he’s found his way

   -gl-

This week is dedicated to my Son and all we’ve learned together…

In Just One Day

Contemplating work and effort…

   In Just One Day

The merchant square goes
Up and down in just one day
How our commerce flows

The Minnesota Scottish

Contemplating life and celebration…

   The Minnesota Scottish

Merchants and athletes
Artisans and dancers too
Gather to compete

Singers of some fame
The Minnesota Scottish
Fair and highland games

   -gl-

The Killing Shot

Courage, sacrifice, and getting the job done…

   The Killing Shot

He shoved the bad guy
Deflecting the killing shot
Job done. As he died…

A tribute to a best friend I never met…

From   –   A Warrior’s Tears: Poems Of Pain   –   (aWIP)

Heroism should be celebrated. Pass it on…
