Time

In the Autumn of my Life

Oh! Yeasterday

Oh! Yeasterday

OLD AGE



"Nothing is Forever!"

Today's Evil

I AM AN AMERICAN

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?

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?

Where Have They Gone!

Where have they gone?
They used to stand tall,
and represents us all!

Decency, honesty,
tolerance, dignity,
pride, self esteem
and morality.

Love for our fellow man.
Time to give a helping hand.
Pride in our flag and for
what it stands.

Have we relinquished our basic principles for
Greed, self indulgence, dishonesty, child abuse,
drug abuse, brutality, rape, murder, hypocrisy,
fear, hate, indecency, thievery, envy and jealousy.

Where’s the teachers,
the preachers, and
the parents?

What’s happened to
kind hearts and
gentle people?

Where have they gone?...
Gone with the wind!
