A Friend Of Light

Poem By Almedia Knight Oliver

As the earth prepared its meeting with the sky
From a distance, I watched the lonely sun sinking
low down into a reddish-orange glow
While sitting in the dark not trusting the light.

Then along came Patricia, and chased away
loneliness, fears, and all their hosts
She used the means to mine beauty, joy, and grace
That I may feel, taste, and lift my spirit high.


Patricia, (lovingly) or Pat, and my dearest friend:
I remember the first day we met. You
Accepted me and all my grime, even instilled
In me that spirituality (or beliefs) completes
You cared for me as I lay in a fetal position,
staring into space, hoping the nightmare would end!

I didn't know which where to go but, yet you kept in touch
Reached out your hands and picked me up, helped me clean
off the life-time-grime...I put on my fine, and
Stepped into the light!


Patricia Dick-Arnell and Kevin Turner may you be blessed and Graced with compassion and love for each that'll pervade the world!
Stay in the light evermore…

A Rush Of Wild Wind

Love is like a wild wind
Am I just a howling wildness?
or maybe a howling triumph!

Evening's Solitude

In evening's solitude sipping a glass of wine, or
maybe two, and listening to Roberta's love songs
Being spirited away dizzily to dream land

The Power Of Love

Early on: the radiance morning sun
infusing space and exposing me unbound
I lay beside him, marveling aura waltzing
behind my eyelids

A Loving Partner

We found each other under the evening sky
the moon sat directly over our heads and sent
tidal waves that made our hearts bulge with love.

Peering into my mind
Look at what I see!

A Special Friend

Your friendship likens the sun-
it lights up the world

Your friendship likens a fruit-
