Love Is ..

Love is more elusive …

We can't ignore the power of love
What is love?


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.

Longtime poet but not in the traditional technical sense. I enjoy rhyme but like to experiment and dabble in many different forms and maybe even make up some of my own. There is always a message or lesson I want to promote through my writing, for that reason, my poetry generally shies away from the abstract and obscure. 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 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.
