Two popular poems in this collection are:
From your pillow through your window
you travel to your land of dreams.
Its special places only you know -
their vistas bathed in sunny gleams.
Flowers carpet the valley,
birds chirp from the trees.
From them you absorb energy
while you float in the breeze.
Now put structure in your vision
to give your life new meaning,
and you can do with what you’re given
with a joyous and prideful feeling.

floating on invisible wings,
darting here and there,
while the whole garden sings.
How do your tiny little eyes
find the perfect blossom?
You always do and
I think you’re awesome!
You hover in flight
and look me in the eye.
Our souls join momentarily
and I follow you to the sky.

I gazed upon a crisp night sky
like the shepherds of old.
They saw creatures there
and gods and heroes bold.
“Hallelujah!” was hope they held
for angels to answer their call
but today we only see
satellites orbiting over all.
I hear there’s twinkling hope
in planets light-years away.
Intelligent life may lurk beyond,
but what have we to say?
Our support forever is Mother Earth.
We are her children, not her master.
We must share with all her creatures
and there will be harmony forever.
