    Hi Bill...read your poem 'Poetry As Prayer'...your words tell this so well...you are right...in so many ways writing poetry is so very solitude...but...rewarding...

Best Poem of Bill Grace

'It Takes A Village To Raise A Child'

My red neck friends disdain her
Or hold her in open contempt
But she has given us a truth in a land of cities
It takes a village to raise a child.
So who were: Daisy and Pappy Millet? Don and Esther Urquhart? Ken Gardner and Jean Thompson? Sphen and Danny Loman? Jo Strain, George VanClef and Madeline Maurie?
Who were these people and others who raised me?
(The names that are not enshrined here)
You do not have to even know all their stories
To know their truth
It takes a village or at the very least
A church of great heart to help raise a child.

Read the full of 'It Takes A Village To Raise A Child'

Like An Acolyte

Like the acolyte of youth
I tend the night lights of our home
With strange proclivity for nourshing their glow
That in darnkness makes a statement of decisive show
Against the saturating power of the night
Not needed with the dawn of day.
