it is the tiny things (for elsie)...


It is the tiny things
that remind me why
(way back in 1989)
I decided to go to artschool
& become an artist.


Last weekend,
it was watching a little girl
dance and giggle and smile
with delight;
when she saw the mural
I had painted her
for her 2nd birthday.


there are some feelings of pride
that all the money in the world
could never buy.

  1. You are a real poet...in the truest sense of the word. Thankyou for making me smile, and feel sad, too.
