Lend Brightness to a Darkened World

Tweet Poems are meant to be Read aloud.  Not mouthed in Quiet, or passed like a Shade through the channels Of the mind. Horns are made to be Heard; loud, blaring.

Tweet Power invests in the self. As long as you navigate the circumference, who you are and who you dream to be remain unexpressed. The center of the circle is at the center.

The Battle

Tweet I must work on myself once again. Conflicted with darkness and light, now raging, now filled with joy. To look into the hearts of others and find myself there.  To feel.  To be aware of life’s potential.  To be strong.  To depend on no one and nothing.  To give, when I feel like taking.  [...]

Dictators, Monsters, & People Like Joe

Tweet Joe was my best friend.  He died in 2006, age 79, from complications of heart surgery.

He loved France.  Even after he returned to Los Angeles with his French wife Framboise, [...]
