The Fall Comes First

You never know
unless you try,
The Fall Comes First
before you fly.

Grounded is the baby bird,
Jumping stumbles sometimes falls.
With time and many practice runs,
Wings wide open, skips… First flight!

Musical Freedom

I’m standing in night’s spotlight,
Grass softly waves like our flag.
Dancing barefoot in the fields,
Alone on the land- Freedom.

If I had a clock or watch,
I’d throw it across the lake.
I’ve said, “It’s alright mom, dad,
All I need is an hour”.

Intentional Randomness

968361(By: Adrian Drower)

Eternity is eternity,
Pat not a saint.
A universe of friends,
Advise the heart, my fallen friend.

Shuffle the shamrock,
Friends from behind enemy lines.
It can be mad math,
Is Pat a saint?

A land of much history,
A land of tall skyscrapers.
A land of crazy driving,
A land of colored night-lights.

A land of wonderful sights,
A land of music and plays.
A land of sports watched and played.
A land of high energy.

Beauty of Northbrook, Illinois

pic(By: Adrian Drower)

Walking the golden path,
Within the promise land.
Colored plants and full-bloomed trees,
Throughout this peaceful place.

Laughing and playful kids,
Roaming their lush, green grass.
Fun and loving are their folks,
As they watch their kids dance.

We are… Wee Speech.

The Wait

The Wait.jpg(By: Adrian Drower)

People everywhere have to stop; wait.
That action is a part of life.
People with loads of patience
are more relaxed; can wait longer.

Green, yellow, red lights,
Votes for the next president,
Or simply standing in line,
It’s our choice we should wait.
