Readers' Feedback

"Richard: As always, lovely to just rummage around on such a visually delicious and inspired site. Of your recent pieces, "Only Silence Remains" is my favourite. I love the depth, mood / tone and sensitivity shown here throughout." - Scott Hastie, Published Poet - United Kingdom.

The Source

Into these pages
I have placed words
like seeds into the soil
of a well-prepared field;

pulled the weeds,
and watched,
prayed for rain,
and waited...

for germination and

this new spring season.
Vibrant and welcome
after a severe, relentless winter.

sprouting with encouragement,
growing with promise,
flowering with beauty.

The fruit of satisfaction

tastes better 
when sprinkled 
with recognition.

time to acknowledge
and confirm
the source of inspiration.

It is provided 

by the Holy Spirit
