My greatest achievement would be to inspire a reader to write their stepping stone stanzas.

Shifting Tide’s Heartfelt Stepping Stones


Hourglass see shore telescopes watch grains,

To shift sand adrift bare foot wandering trails,

Where time wonders awash changing tides

Bearing celestial quick sand rein gravitating time.


Stepping stone tight thoughts traverse life lines

Wherein writer’s ink might, stains the memory fabric.

Where keyboards characters create rich ripe rhyme

Upon stanza steps of cerebral current mystic magic.


Oh poet, lay down pure poetic power potentials

 That arises heartstrings deep in resonating lifelines.

That time does define poetic writing stepping stones,

Where each floats as lily pads on poetry’s celestial ocean.


This poem is about bright blossoms existing deep inside YOU.

To Be YOU, a magical fabric parchment that seeds future minds.

YOU say NAUGHT. But a Poet says, “YOU shall create inspiration.”

For if YOU build stepping stones, they will come to walk on them.


Just as you walk attuned to this poet’s visionary stepping stones

That does define life between birth and death in a writing existence.

Take a napkin and jot down six things composing tranquil thoughts,

Then sprout budding blossom heartfelt steps that flower heartstrings.


Flower of creation lays within the core composition of pure “Being.”

Those sense tenses of time writing the grains of rhyme shorelines.

Where we find the roots that composes “Our” ecstatic Poetry lifelines.

Eye the You in US being “We the Poets” creating Phoenix Power Poetry

Bearing Liberty winged expressions blessed in Freedom’s word talons

That in dynamic Democracy, We can together share visions,

Shifting Tide’s Heartfelt Stepping Stones.
