'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.

Compass Poem #1

Love your life
Even if you must search to find it
Richard Bach owned an airplane
Even when he was broke.

The issue is neither sex nor money
They are the great static
On the television screens of our lives
The things that will destroy us
If we focus upon them too much.

There is a deeper chord
That will see you through
There is no safe harbor
Only a relative freedom where you can see
The fin of the shark approaching.

If you are to love your life
You must love what you do
Richard Bolles can help
But the burden is yours
To live in or climb from purgatory
Even as a baby’s diaper stinks.

Eat Dessert First

Eat dessert first
life is indeed
uncertain.
Who ever could guess
that the man
who made me a colonel,
once out of power
would never return
to let me say thank you.

:) Reflection on Three Robert Frost Poem Dates

If 1912 is the date he burned his boats
Then three poem dates I find of interest
1915 - The Road Not Taken
1920 - Fire and Ice
1923 - Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
My understanding $200 his income
From his first twenty years of writing
Makes me feel ok I'll never earn a penny.
