|IT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME HOW NATURE INSPIRES US SO BEAUTIFULLY. EACH AND EVERY DAY...WE ALL DO WHAT WE CAN TO KEEP FROM SINKING. BUT I HAVE FOUND THAT NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY...I ALWAYS NEED A LITTLE HELP FROM MY 'FRIEND'...'HE' ALWAYS KEEPS ME AFLOAT. THIS IS A GREAT WRITE, THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS.
LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

I can relate, alot of us are just one breath away from sinking. I've always felt that poets bare their soul in there writes, thats what "I" see as a poet writes. Exellent poetry, my friend.
