My Rules

  • Comments

Comments are encouraged but I reserve the right to not post any comment that may be deemed in opposition to the purpose of this site (which is to be inspiring, uplifting, and informative).

WordPress uses Askimet® in an effort to filter spam; however, WordPress also allows the blogger to “mark as spam” any comments deemed spam at the blogger’s discretion.

  • Guideines

I will seek to give you a blog free from foul language, evident ridiculing of another person’s politics, race, religion or personal preferences.  No hate themes and no words that might belittle and hurt people.

Quotations are cited with author information and are not my property.  HOWEVER, any posts, comments, photos or data other than that which is cited from others are my property and should be considered unavailable for your use without permission.  You may inquire via e-mail:

A great site


Dear Reader, I am here to give you a little taste of poetry with some water on the side. When you come on my blog that's all that you will taste is Poetry. Not the type of poetry where it doesn't have a meaning. The type of poetry where you will be inspired, uplifted and you will have a different mindset once you leave this site. You might even come to get a taste of this poetry again. Don't be afraid to let your kids read this blog. My poetry is for and to help the youth. Bring them along with you. You both are scrolling down your phone or on the computer anyway. Let's have fun and get a taste of some poetry. I promise this type of poetry tastes delicious. Grab a plate and a fork and I'll feed you. ENJOY!!!!
