This is yet another poem I wrote in the 80's. That seems to have been my discovery years when I was the most creative. Today, in 2012, I'm pleased to say I still believe everythng this poem is about.




The Essence of Life




The Moon

The Stars

The Sun

The trees

The earth…


Life.


That’s what’s

Real…


The Beauty

Of

Life…


The Meaning

Of

Life…


The Essence

Of

Life.


Love.

      It's pretty hard to argue with this conclusion. Love...period! Everything else is window-dressing.

      Great hub my friend, an oldie but a goodie, from a very special person who understands all about the essence of life.

      My friend, you have no idea how it pleases me to have you as my first to comment! I've been working hard this weekend. I had 5 500 word articles to write, plus 3 re-writes to do. I also had the goal of posting two pieces to HP, my beloved home. I'm pleased to say, it is 6:17 EST and I've accomplished my goals! Plus did laundry!

      I'm getting into my rythym my friend. I discovered what was missing was my music and I took my assignments too seriously. I turned on my my music, let my personality back thru and I'm on fire!

      I owe it all to you, Bill. I had the dream, but you gave me the drive.

      God Bless you. BTW, where can I buy your book?
