A Dedication

I dedicate this poem to my counsellors, mentors and coaches.  Thank you for helping me see my potential.  I also would like to dedicate this poem to all my friends who have begun to master the greatest distance, a distance of 18". Stay strong! 

Let the Grey Clouds Roll In

Let the grey clouds roll in

And filling me within

Darkness appears,

Along with fears

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Cover my face and skin

Warm and wet and loving rain

Washing away tears ‘n pain

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Thunder claps ‘n lightening

Flashes of light and sound

Help me to turn around

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Seeing and following

Truth, honesty and serenity

And believing for eternity

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Nothing will be stopping

Colorful arcs of rainbow

Painting new canvas below

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Strokes of color fillin‘

A world of possibilities

With many capabilities

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Suddenly believing

There is more to life

Than chaos and strife

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

Standing and actioning

New beliefs without calamity

Creating a new reality

*

Let the grey clouds roll in

I am standing and smiling

Living and loving

Dreaming and being

*

Larry -- It is so wonderful to see you again! :) Life can be as simple as we wish, or as complicated as we want to create it. And yes, Carpe Diem is the way to live. Thank you Larry, it's always a pleasure when you come by.
