the trees grow
and each blossom
is a promise.
I am not too busy to listen.
I am quiet enough
to understand.

we are all children
so why can't you be
a child with me--
grow deeper into innocence
and mature in your passions.
your generosity and kindness
will keep you young.

there is never a darker night
than living with both eyes closed.
to open
is not to see daylight,
but to know each moment
as a thought
in God's infinite now.

Nice poems. It will be fine if you send me a selection of these poems + a short CV of you for the issue no 4/2010 of Contemporary Horizon Magazine. You may be published in bilingual version. Be well!

I love this:

"to open
is not to see daylight,
but to know each moment
as a thought
in God's infinite now."

Theresa: I hope you get some more of your poems published.
