Hi Wayne, thanks so much for introducing me to your poetry through the email you sent about your wonderful new kindle publication. Congratulations on a big effort. In fact, I was so taken with your poetry on your blog and website that I immediately downloaded 'The Migration' from Amazon and very much look forward to what promises to be an uplifting read. Your courage in the face of adversity is amazing. Although I don't suffer from Bipolar, I do have a chronic and life-limiting health condition and know a little about struggle and the search for wholeness myself. Love and light, Mel www.soulandspiritmusings.wordpress.com

Thank you for sharing your site. What memories we take with us throughout life.....from Mills Home and the brothers and sisters we found there! What a beautiful site.

I listened to the music as I read your poetry and your heart-wrenching words about bipolar. Your site is so well done and is a feast for those whose are emotionally famished. I cried when I read poem after poem of heartbreak. May you please be well my friend.

Poems Listed by Page Title

Chubby Penny    
the girl with the pearl earring  .
song of the mattress
october brushed by
the whisper of silence
pale green suicide
long it's shadow round
the corner
world traveler

Watercolor Rose                   
november doesn't hurt anymore
morning was sadder than april
fortress  .
the watercolor rose
family tree  .
little things
always  .
morning rose
the cowboy
the barren bridge
new york memories


Wooden Nickel                     
wooden nickels  .
4:03 train in belmont
in her garden  .

Shattered Windowpanes                         
fingers of fog
purple bowl in the window  .
straight talkin' man  .
can't knock anymore
bleu cheese and teardrops   .
proud to be an american  .
in need of repair  .

Music Man                             
photographic suicide
bus stop
tears on the street
naked mattress  .
white horses
music man

chocolate shops and shoes with a sole  .

madrid in the springtime
salvation army
hawthorne zep  .
broken silence
lost minutes
sounds  .

The Green Door                     
the breath of angels  .
white umbrella
too late to cry
blue room
life's journey  .
the last blackbird  .
the missing key
the key
waiting  .
the workbench  .

Box of Yesterday                    
new york memories  .
jukebox  .
rabboni  . 
everybody's dying
the umbrella  .
lifeless fruit in her bowl of sin  .
silent scream  .

circles of tears
payson  . 
repetition  .
freedom walk
