Vincent, age 6 and Devon, age 4. I belong to two fabulous international writing groups, the Decadent Lotus Society, and the Inner Circle of Poets, a non profit group of gifted writers for a cause....

Friendship Candle

Hold a candle
In your heart, my friend,
A flame,
Outshining the sun.
A glow of warmth
In your eyes, my friend,
Twinkling mischief
To everyone.
Hold the light
In your hands, my friend,
As gently as your own.
A fire of strength
in your mind, my friend,
Tempered longer
Than all we've known.
So, hold a candle
In your heart, my friend,
A flicker
Brighter than stars above.
Hold a candle
Of love, my friend,
Your very own
Candle of love.

Take Me Back

Take me back to fairest of times,
When dragons fought,
Sovereignty reigned.
When maidens were pure,
Gentle and kind,
Men battled, died, for lord's ordained.
Take me back to magical times
With kingdoms grand,
Knights ,hallowed and hailed.
Royalty ruled, tended the land,
The loyal rewarded,
When proved not to fail.

Take me back to mysterious times,
When wizards cast spells;
Potions ran wild.
Peasants saw visions, nobles dreamed,
Kings were courageous,
Their queens, so mild.
Take me back where I may see
Where unicorns ran
And princesses dined.
Renaissance life, where I wish to be,
Please, take me back
To a pure, simple time.
