In the Autumn of my Life

Oh! Yeasterday

Oh! Yeasterday


"Nothing is Forever!"

Today's Evil


In the Eye of the Tiger

A Conversation between My Cat and Dog

If, I Had It All To Do Over!

Twilight Honor

A Portrait of my Life

Fifty Years of Tears

Eternal Rest

Do You Remember When?

Mirrow Reflctions

Who Knew?

"Jack Who?"

Ain't That a Shame?

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!

Near Miss

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!"

Let Pandora open it!"

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

Hope is all we have left in the end.

Jackie R. Kays
