    Eu reconheço um certo som doce, macio, redondo que sempre permeia os seus poemas. Como uma música romântica italiana cantada e nítida. Um certo amargor sometimes, well subtil. Sorry but i don't get put it in english i simple don't know how translate that! ! ! Beautiful Poet! ! !

Best Poem of Rick Elpers

While She Slept

Coyotes yelping in the distance
Crickets chorusing in the yard
Silent is the air, stilled by
The warm summer evening
Listening to this out of the
 Open window
At rest hoping to sleep
And dream of our conversation 
To envelope us completely 
Like smoke rising from ashes 
Of the past where all that was
Burned up is useless
Leaving only the virtue of love
To whisp around circling our bodies
Drawing closer mingling flesh 
With emotion seen expressing
Both realities the ethereal and
The physical
Only to be awakened by the cat
Startling me to...

Read the full of While She Slept

Tree Of Life

To the stones 
Must a tree grow
Through perseverance 
And time
With strength of life
Tower above circumstance and trial
again to bloom 
Season after season 
shelter to the needs
When rain and wind
Threaten and shade
From the sun
Under its abundant 
Foliage we rest assured
From each days toil
