I have some current books in the works right now. Next year they maybe coming out.
White sandy beaches stretch for miles
Never ending, they go on and on.
Blue, teal ocean waters are calm
With gently rolling white cap waves
Moving in and out; in and out.
A green frilly palm tree on edge of beach asks,
Why can’t I be closer to the ocean
and enjoy the breezes of the wind there.
While a brown shelled crab dances sideways
Down the never ending beach
Between rows and rows of towels,
Each different with color designs.
Crab keeps going until he finds
The one place he can get away
From the hustle and bustle
Of many people on the beach.
Many colors swirl around me everyday
I see their hues– some light; some dark
Some change with each season
I see colors in nature
From green grass to blue rivers
I see colors in buildings
From rusty red bricks to gray steel
I see colors from every corner
From box of crayons to a can of paint
Colors surround me day and night
I live and breathe colors
From black night to light blue days
Colors rules the picture
Of what I see from eyes

Stitched together from squares of colored patchwork
A homemade quilt lies folded upon the bed
Each square unique in some way to tell a story maybe
