In the distance be the train whistle
The rumble of wheels upon track
The thundering airplane directly above
The crickets sing
The silence rests
Sweet be this summer night
A night serenade
Through the open window.

Join a daily celebration of poetry and the arts. This blog gives voice to the academics, the arts, creativity, expression and the pursuit of TRUTH. All art forms, all academic interests are timeless reflections and revelations of the human condition. Passion, poetry and the arts fuel the creative fires that move me to expression and deep gratitude. My published book of poems, THE WIND AND THE WILLOW is available at Barnes and Noble and online booksellers nationally and internationally.
