It is my hope that these poems will help the reader to connect with their own emotions and have new found compassion for the struggle of many others.

I have become a dreamer

Our minds can do so many things
Imagine and believe
A dream of what we want from life
Some dreams we can achieve

I watched you as you looked ahead
What was it you were dreaming?
Of life, or love, or happiness
This was not idle scheming

Your ability to visualize
Has made me feel drawn too
To dreams and opportunities
I’ve learnt that much from you

So now I do not just accept
That this is where I’m stuck
I dream my dreams and build my life
Don’t just rely on luck

I have become a dreamer
When I sleep and when I wake
I know I’ll make the best for me
It’s thanks to dreaming’s sake.

That's just the way I feel

In honor of Jeanette Mackenzie whose work we published in 2005, sadly she passed away without her verses being published on line.

People who have shown vulnerability, trust and amazing strength through adversity and joy through accomplishment and who have demonstrated that, in my opinion, humans are mostly good.

Kudos to you and Jeanette. I especially love the image bearing your name -- the last one -- it looks like part of a Josephine Wall (she is my favorite visual artist).

Many thanks Phil and Fern. The image is my creation in Photoshop but I'm also a great fan of Josephine and have most of her calendars.
