I walked through many fields in youthful days.
My dog and I crossed cotton fields, we'd roam under a hot Texas sun. We'd bask in the peaceful countryside while hunting for small game.
The Sun Shines on Ribbons and Roses: Poetry, Prose, and Potpourri
On a rainy afternoon, the sun shines bright on Ribbons and Roses: Prose, Poetry & Potpouri. This lovely book was created by childhood friends, V.M.Wolter and Joseph A. Zapalac. Just gaze at the book cover with its image of a breathtaking rose corsage. It brings back memories of weddings and high school proms. Just reach out! You can almost feel the silky petals and breathe in the heady scent of roses. This book cover beckons to you to come inside to find its treasure chest filled with spiritual messages, philosophic thoughts, faith, trust, strength, love, beautiful bible scriptures, daily life experiences and a very special message on pg. 66. It may be just 10 lines of prose, but they say it all! For there is someone who will always wait for you, be there for you and love you unconditionally. He is the Lord and he loves everyone.
I think this book would make a beautiful gift, so i am giving my autographed copy of this book to The Brooklyn College Library....to be cataloged and placed on their shelf for all students to enjoy.
I just want to add that Ms. Wolter & Mr. Zapalac share two wonderful things in common with me. We have the same book publisher, Outskirts Press of Denver, Colorado; and we have the same love & admiration for the beautiful music of the 1950's, doo-wop music, NYC street corner harmony, acapella singing, songs of love and romance, great lead singers and beautiful girl groups.
It has truly been a pleasure to review this book. It has warmed my heart and I know you will feel the same way.

This is a great collection of poetry and prose and the added sprinkling of God's Word throughout the book is inspirational. I like the fact that the authors made available space for the reader to write his or her own thoughts and feelings. I was happy to see that they will be donating a portion of the sales to the homeless and hurting across the United States. I look forward to more from this great writing team.
