Hopefully, They will Say...

Does It Matter?

Love Found

Who Knew?

My Little Dog named-Art



Yesterday's Autumn

A Bowl of Cheers?

I Say!

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?

Ten

When is it all going to end?

Sleep

Just Let It Be

La Vie en Rose

Heads in the Sand?

If I've Learned Anything!

Silver Bullet

The Path We Choose

A Soldier's Integrity

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

Robin Fly Away

You See!

The Demise of the Old Cowboy

What Will I Miss?

Ode to Christian "Kiki" Fenot

Bobby and Me

The Little Green Box

Where did the little green box come from?
What does the little green box hold?

Does the little green box hold a precious stone?
Does the little green box hold a treasure map of old.
Does the little green box hold a shiny bar of gold?
Does the little green box hold a bomb ready to blow?

Is the contents of that little green box the devil’s curse?  
Who will open the little green box first?

"You open it!"
"I’m not openin’ it!"
"You open it!"

"Hey!
Let Pandora open it!"

And out of the gates of hell it came,
and there’s no way we can ever put it back
again!

Hope is all we have left in the end.
