Spread the love, Plant the seed
Telephone calls from old friends – Smiling faces on both ends
Oh yes, the memories were great – A kiss on my very first date
Umbrella in a storm to dread – In a stranger’s hand over my head
Choir of angels, Christmas day – Chicken soup, no need to pay
Hands to lift when you are down – Hot cocoa, love all around
Expect nothing in return – Love’s not something that you earn
Sleepy heads on overtime – Here’s a blanket for the meantime
Out of the darkness, into the light – Soup for an orphan, a kiss goodnight
Frozen grapes in the summer heat – Food when you don’t deserve to eat
Hyacinths and marigolds – Bless those lovely hearts of gold
Everywhere they walk, they go – Each one an unsung hero
A gift with no strings attached – God’s grace can’t be outmatched
Very precious, priceless indeed – When we help each other in need
Encourage someone, do a good deed – Spread the love, plant the seed
New springs bloom for a tomorrow – For a time with much less sorrow
“Touches of Heaven” was the winning poem for week 5 round (acrostic poem) of the 3rd Annual Biggest Conpetition Ever — 2018.

Made it into the Wattys 2018 Longlist
I can’t believe it! THE CRICKET’S LOVE SONG is on the Wattys 2018 longlist. There were 151,767 entries this year and this story made it to the top 784 in the longlist. Even without getting into the shortlist or winning, this in itself will be a memorable achievement in my writing journey.
If you haven’t checked this story out, please do. This young cricket will definitely appreciate your company in his wild journey of finding true love.
That’s all folks. Thank you all so so much and see you next time. God bless you all.
Oh, where can my doggy be?
On where my doggy could be.
No one seems to know
Dead or alive; where is he?
Missing my best friend:
Of calm little doggy
Running up to greet me,
In my constant company.
Extinguish not the lamp,
Searching must go on.

A Haiku about Unrequited Love
Ten minutes too late
Perhaps we’re not meant to be
My dreamboat had sailed
