poems but meaningful to many who read this poets work.
In 2006, Astralshepherd began reading these poems
aloud at open mic. sessions and to anyone who would
stop and listen.

married with one daughter, this poet carries the voices
of more than six decades of life experience and
unique perspectives into a new millennium.

an integral part
when intellect stays
an emotional heart
Echoes of summer fill the air
where barefoot children danced and played
grassy meadows now lie bare
in a seasonal passing parade
