  1.     

'It Takes A Village To Raise A Child'

My red neck friends disdain her
Or hold her in open contempt
But she has given us a truth in a land of cities
It takes a village to raise a child.
So who were: Daisy and Pappy Millet? Don and Esther Urquhart? Ken Gardner and Jean Thompson? Sphen and Danny Loman? Jo Strain, George VanClef and Madeline Maurie?
Who were these people and others who raised me?
(The names that are not enshrined here)
You do not have to even know all their stories
To know their truth
It takes a village or at the very least
A church of great heart to help raise a child.

  2.     

Foggy Morning

Sometimes the morning start is slow
You can not find your glasses
And wear frames so ugly
Only the military could issue them,
Or some agency purporting to make us equal.
On this day you are glad
For the extra cautions of your life
The care at the view blocked intersection
The parade of potential accidents passing by
When things are normally clear and you skim through
Realizing what could have been the cost
If you had not stopped and meant it
On a foggy morning where you could
See a mile clearly and still miss it.

Therapy in America at Christmas in 2014

The therapist
helps the poet
with healing, hope, peace
Christ in our day
but
please have the
120 with you.

Poster

'Arise go forth and conquer.' - Tennyson
The poster said with young duckling pictured and quoting big T
I can still celebrate that spirit though old
But know that for duckling to grow to duck
Wise eyes must guide to keep brother hawk from lunch.
