Restored #forgiveness #poetry #uganda

Freedom Cancelled #poetry #alzheimers

Without A Song #music #poetry #haiku

If I could write a song for you it would go something like this: Without fingers to stroke without a voice to sing these instruments stand with little meaning *** but there was a day that we’d  dance and we’d play long into the midnight hours *** memories alone warm these keys of practice andContinue reading “Without A Song #music #poetry #haiku”
