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!

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?


When is it all going to end?


Just Let It Be

La Vie en Rose

Heads in the Sand?

If I've Learned Anything!

A Self Portrait

Let see…I’ll start with a little dab of
white for my remaining innocence.
A brush or two of green for my
hidden envy.
A dash of yellow for my melancholy.

Some bright red for my anger and tears.
A brush of blue for my changing years.
A dash of brown for my fears.

A stroke of black for my lack of self confidence.
A large stroke of gold for my conscience,
compassion, and tolerance.  

A streak of silver for my
years of experience and a little
hard earned wisdom too.

That’s a portait of me…
and any old frame will do.

Jackie R. Kays
