Mourning Sky

I wrote this after the 9/11 tragic act of terrorism happened. I am sharing it by request. Thank you. May we all continue to pray for one another as we still stumble through the horrors of that day. 

Mourning Sky  


He Built A Bridge Upon This Mountain

His hands were rough and ragged 

Working carpenter by trade 

Carving out his lonely world 

In everything that he made 

He strummed softly on his strings 

After hours in the sun 

And watched the full moon rise up 

Another day…


Old Barn

Lying awake

Here is a new one I wrote. rather rough, needs some sparkle still...

Til I ran out of change
