Here is a collection of poems and some simple statements and recollections that I felt compelled to share. It is a book that dwells on the beauty of life.


This is a book of poems I have written. Poetry is a beautiful way to describe life.  It can be melodic but always full of life.

I began this with friends at a web site called ‘’ It became a passion. Many of the poems here are posted on my web site. Some I have saved for this book. The name, “Rebirth of the Dogwood” came from a true story. When my wife and I bought our home more than thirty-seven years ago there was a beautiful pink dogwood in the front yard. We thought we lost it a few years ago when it became sickly and stopped giving the wonderful blossoms. I reluctantly cut it down but left the stump. Ann said she would put a flower pot on it and we would have at least that to remember the tree by.


The tree didn’t give up as easily as we thought. Two years later it began to send little trees coming off the root. It is now a bush but it is blossoming. We could turn it into a tree if we wanted to prune but I think I like it in the shape it is in. This gave me reason to wonder at the Majesty of God. Like the Dogwood, we will be reborn one day.


I hope you enjoy this book.
