Night Noises

NIGHT NOISES….  Silence of the night is breathless Air tight in anticipation The clouds, colossal in their flight Veil the moon, eerily dipping in an out of sight    A rodent scurries under the house fearless For its safety, yet intent on the kill Foraging for morsels, to refrain Itself and its family’s hunger pain    No other noise…See More

True Grit!

True Grit!


Integrity is life’s ‘true grit’

To aid or abet our crooning


Integrity is a babe’s first…

Melancholy in D major
