    Hi, Sonny - I am doing an art / science activity for children at a community Wind Festival in Euclid, Ohio. I am using the seeds that are blown by the wind - like maple seeds. I like your poem very much and plan to use it with our art project. Thank you!

    Assisted Living is perfect. I think you have to have been through it to know it and write about it. See my 'Waiting for the Folks.'

Best Poem of Sonny Rainshine

Passive Voice

You protest
that love has passed you by,
that life has passed you by,
but was it you
who were the passer-by?

Read the full of Passive Voice

Finding What We Lost

Where do you keep your joy?
Did you install it
in a strongbox or tuck it
in your wallet?

Have you given all your zest away—
Get it back!
It’s not something to sell
or to toss in a sack.

You say the travails of life
have snatched it away.
Relocate it. Take it back;
redeem it today.
