bEvening Star

O' beautiful and brilliant
My one evening star
Gazing toward your beams
Splendous glory afar

Visions of hope and serenity
Cast out from your beams
For a moment in time
Caught in and endless dream

Brilliant pods of energy
Tucked in God's distant sky
Stunned by your beauty
Never questioning why?

Lifting my head upward
Again, and then again
Transfixed on the heavens
Toward my special friend

Only resting in prayer
With sparkles in my eyes
Spiritually, finally home
Just in gazing the sky
Barry A. Lanier




Not found in the legends
of dark fearsome horsemen
But only in the ignorance of
many small minded men
Barry A. Lanier



Bewareb(Author Favorite)

She covets her pocketbooks and has no two alike,
And every month she goes to Belk's to buy a new one.
At 88, she still drives, with her huge sunglasses,
Making right turns like an 18-wheeler does.
She drives an average of 10 miles and hour,
Including stops when she remembers to she does.
Mom loves to attend all the social functions in town,
Especially the showers and weddings of the smitten young.
Armed with her pocketbook she'll sashay over to the buffet,
Fill her pocketbook with treasure, pigs-in-a-blankets,
Watercress and pimiento cheese sandwiches
All of which she'll eat later but she never does.
She always told me she grew up in the depression,
and a responsible mother would never turn down food.
They all harden and calcify like the plaque in her arteries,
Acquiescent to the fact, I empty her pocketbooks weekly.
'Mom, when are you going to quit driving I asked? '
'Oh about the same time that they quit having weddings and luncheons! '
Barry A. Lanier




Extraordinary men and women
Reveal themselves in time
Like fine wine only waiting
A succulence how sublime
Introverted or yet unknown
As calling of time demands
Rising in glory they are known
Most courageous and braven
Sifting through life like sand
Until their beckoned calling
All the times they fervently face
These few, the extraordinary
Shall we always forever embrace

{Dedicated to those who give the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom and way of life}
Barry A. Lanier
