I LOOKED UP TODAY, SAW A RAINBOW IN THE SKY
THEN THOUGHT OF YOU, I KNOW NOT WHY
SO I STOPPED TO PONDER FOR A WHILE
AND REALIZED INSIDE, WAS A SMILE
LITTLE THINGS CAN MAKE US HAPPY THERE
AND SO WITH YOU I WANT TO SHARE
SOON SUNSHINE AND RAINBOW BECOME DARK AND STAR
TWINKLING SPARKLES ETCHED UPON BLANKETS OF TAR
AN ARTISTIC CANVAS WROUGHT OF SPIRITUAL HANDS
WHILE EARTHBOUND ANGELS UNSEEN, GLIDE THE LANDS

Like the rhymes ;) Share an excerpt of your favorite poet’s work (10-100 words):

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead mean naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.

Dylan Thomas

Did reading a poem first spark the desire to write poetry, or was it an experience?:

Really it was just inspiration and/or improve.

What goal do you seek through your poetry?

To share it with others and perhaps at the same time have some financial retirement funds through it.

Please share your #1 tip for poets/writers:

Speak from your heart.

Indeed! Your websites/blogs/etc:

Here’s the link to my poetry book on Amazon.
