In your mind’s eye, picture the last time you were moved to tears, or your heart broke, or your spirit soared,
because of something you read that ignited passion within you. That’s the power of poetry, Touching the Soul,
breathing life and passion into your essence.
Poetry is meant to be read aloud, whether in your head,
or aloud to others. Poetry is meant to be acted out,
each poem staged as a one act play, in, and of itself.
And while it is true that not all poems stir the soul,
those that actually do, are read, again, and again, and again! And embraced as priceless for generations!
My gift to you as reader, is to find a part of this book that connects with you.
This poetry, dear reader, is Simply for You!

Ugly Sheep

It was mentioned in a most apologetic way. 

This was the field of ugly sheep, black sheep and all.

The field opposite a bed and breakfast in Scotland,

On which a handful of ugly sheep gathered, trying to fit in.


Ugly sheep, big creatures, long legs, long bodies, long necks

Some with bare skin carrying a blueness about the face and legs

Replete with Roman noses

And then there were big ears, more like a donkey than a sheep,



There were also black and white ones, dotting the landscape

The black ones considered taboo

Hiding out far from view

Unable to contend with the ridicule

Hugging tight to the wall, with backs up

Erect ears like radar, ensuring their own safety

From afar, resembling speckled black dirt

Most unappetizing


In some places country farmers cull-

And report ugly sheep in their flocks

“Xtreme sheep”

Undesirable wool features:

Uneven wool; bare patches; worse, no wool at all; or highly rubbery and wrinkled skin

Culled by farmers

Random genetic mistakes,

Sticking out like sore thumbs


Whatever will become of ugly sheep?

Is it possible to let the “ugly” ones live in the world?

Rather than face ridicule and elimination?

Fortunately, they have since been moved

It was all for the best!
