ETERNAL GUARDIAN

Updated on August 7, 2013
Source

Angels wing extended,

Creating a protective shield,

Guardian for a purpose,

That reaches beyond the present,

A good deed never dies,

Even after all that knew,

Of the deed have passed,

From remembrance,

It remains,

Blending with the cosmos,

Inspiring to new birth,

New creation,

Love,

Honor,

Productive positive growth,

That will dwell among all life,

All a product of one caring touch,

A cherub who opened an eye,

Unfurled his velvety wings,

And reached out his hand

      I have lived in San Diego and Long Beach, but I was born in Bakersfield and lived most of my life in the San Joaquin Valley. Florida is my home now : )

      The Bay area is very nice. I loved Northern California.

      I've lived here for 12 years now. I just really wanted to get out of Bakersfield. An opportunity presented itself and I jumped on it.

      Well Sir Wayne, not only are you a poetic chameleon in which you can write any style or in any genre but you are the eternal guardian of great storytelling with your magic words.

      Sending warm wishes from Colin's jazz cafe and a nice cuppa tea, don't worry , red wine will come later with Black Sabbath , lol.

      Colin: Thank you my friend. I do enjoy mixing up my styles, (as I have see you do). I do the same thing with painting. I've been told that I should find a particular niche' and stick with it, but I hate the idea of being stereotyped into one particular expectation. When it comes to my painting, my writing, or my music, I don't worry so much what other people might think of it. I do hope that others will enjoy it, but as long as it is tickling my fancy...I'll giggle by myself if I have to!
