Words of Whimsy Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter  ... John Keats
 Poetry allows us to express our  deeper feelings  without appearing trite ......   Keith Scott
RENEWAL Waves slapping, lapping on the beach, Sailboats float beyond your reach; Happy sounds of children playing And squealing, circling gulls displaying Their great disdain; man’s vanity Now’s the time to find your soul And discover life’s true goal. As quietly pond’ring the enormity Of restless nature’s lack; conformity, You once again ... find sanity DUCKLINGS, OUTSIDE MY WINDOW Funny, fuzzy feathered thing, Sheltered by your mother's wing And, with your siblings, scurrying Hither, thither; always....hurrying.
