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.

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

The fruit of satisfaction

tastes better 
when sprinkled 
with recognition.

Now:
time to acknowledge
and confirm
the source of inspiration.

It is provided 

by the Holy Spirit
dwelling
within.
