Romance at Pebble Creek Baptist Church

I remember

I was drawn to stop

at a small Baptist church

I now know why


you sat alone

my eyes would

not leave you

you looked perfect

you dressed perfect

you smiled perfect

I sent a prayer

to God

for courage to

met you

I wanted to date you

I wanted to fall in love

When the


and music ended

I walked to you

a bit nervous

and asked if you would like

to have a snack

at Mike’s Grill

For what seemed a lifetime

you looked into my eyes

then said yes

That became the beginning

of love

greater than I ever

had before.

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
