Love is more elusive …
Love is wetter than the tears we shed
Hotter than a fire
Thicker than mud
More elusive than a liar.
Love is darker than a starless night
Faster than a lightning flash
Older than the pyramids
More deadly than a crash.
Love is more complex than calculus
Righter than it’s wrong
Rhymes better than a poem
More tuneful than a song.
Love is more precious than gold
Smarter than Einstein
Holier than Jesus
More sunny than sunshine.
Love is deeper than the ocean
Colder than snow fall
Harder than a granite rock
More big than it is small.
Love is better when it’s shared
Funnier than a clown
Wiser than Confuscious
More up than it is down.
Love is in everything we do
We wear it on our sleeve
We can’t ignore the power of love
It’s in the air we breath.

After a lot of procrastinating I have finally self-published my first eBooks of poetry "I Laughed a Smile" and "On the Wings of Eagles" at Lulu.com.Now I find myself branching out and experimenting with short fiction.
I have also been fortunate to have two poems chosen to be made into songs and recorded. The first "On the Road to Kingdom Come" by Al Wordlaw, and the second, "If I Could Write a Love Poem" by award-winning Israeli/British singer Tally Koren.
I am also finding my services increasingly in demand as a freelance writer and I have ghost-written the text for a number of children's books and educational tutorials.
It has taken me many years of searching and restlessness to realise that my life's passion is to write. It saddens me that I wasted so many years not devoting to that, but thinking positively, the experiences gained over those years is now wonderful material for my stories and poems.
I want to try to bring a new focus on poetry and try to make it appealing to a new generation of young people and those who thought they never liked or understood it before.
