Poems are from the heart. God gave thought and the process became print. After the lost of mother in 2006, hence the inspiration for this book. The first poem, Precious Memories help to deal with the lost of mother. Other poems are random encouragement for all. Some are old and some are new but all are for enjoyment. Some rhyme and others are fact-finding types. You will find Poetry/General, Religious/Holidays/Christmas/Inspirational, and Nature/General. Hope and love in the world today, a must for our society. For example, the poem Grass-hoppers alert you, realizing we are but grass-hoppers, struggling to survive because of the economy we face. Yet, other poems show generosity of our neighbors, and give praise to a higher power for his grace and love.
