Jack Barry who was born on April 17th
Born a day before and did succeed–
He was a great friend and artist indeed.
He took me to lunch when I first came
To the “Artist Hut”.
Yes, Jack had a studio in Flamingo Park
Next to railroad tracks where dogs always barked.
He did all kinds of style painting–
Fresco he was known for—
I have his one big painting by my door.
He was a great storyteller and a U.S. Vet-
He had a very interesting life of all the people
I have met.
I inherited his butterfly necklace people do see–
When I wear it around my neck all sparkly.
Thanks Jack for being a friend to me.

Poem Dedicated to Jack Barry
April 17, 1948- Aug. 7, 2013
It is very true
I can see Jesus is the sun…
Jesus protects me from the storms
I’m never afraid that is true…
I always know what to do.
Jesus promises the Tree of Life
in Heaven where nothing dies !!!
You have to make Jesus your Lord and Savior today–
He gives forgiveness freely in this Age of Grace

Barking, barking your cute little bark-
I found you on a prayer and a lark.
You were a traveling “runaway pup”
who made your home anywhere
you’ld end up.
You were my birthday present
Straight from Kansas in the middle of wheat.
Now, I’m so happy
you became my pet
all those years I’ll never forget.
All the memories of running
in the fields
like when I sprained my ankle
you kneeled at my heels.
Making sure I was home & safe
I return the love in so many ways.
Now it’s sad that I was not with you
if I would of known earlier
I would of flew
flew up to see you.
One last precious time
to say “I love you pup” and
my say last goodbye…

Comedy Cruise Lines judges had eyes on me–
performing with only me.
Miami Herald photographer Candice West
took photo that was in color, not like the rest.
Interviewed by the Miami Herald that day
Robert Santiago to see what I had to say.
At the Improve Comedy Club in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel
I got to make the judges laugh and did quite well.
I told Robert, “I live my life on the edge–
I look forward to this” Enough said.
Robert Santiago emailed me later that day–
said “You are off the chain–
Thanks Robert, improv is what I do–
my act never the same!

Jim is watching with keen eye.
For he notices props set up for audience to see
used in “Sarah’s Special Birthday” reading.
Palm Beach photographer shows up soon
taking photos at high noon.
Children wear costumes with wands in hand
bringing magic to Krendoll land.
Melodie pops out of box
she is happy with no socks.
Now Razel doesn’t show her face
Happy story — she has no place.
Then UniCandle unicorn lights the cake
making children anticipate–
for there is magic in the air–
will Sarah Star receive her present
with moon beam glare?
Happy ending does unfold
Sue Chevalier the storyteller just had told
A rhyming poem with characters with special powers
This all happened within an hour.
Books where signed on the spot
along with photos that where shot
to capture the happy memories
of this day in Lake Worth city.

In 2005 had found-
a duplex in West Palm
Close to downtown.
I went a cross the bridge
To work for Michael’s café-
Ended up working for
Palm Beach Today.
I started out stuffing their
Newspapers with big colorful ads
Then Ron wanted me
To take photographs.
My first assignment
Was the Palm Beach Pet Parade—
Dogs and owners dressed
in costumes looking
cool in the shade.
Photos in the Gucci Courtyard
Were interesting and fun
I took a photo of a lady and her
Dog kissing towards the sun.
That photo landed me the job
The job of being a photographer
With the hob knobs.
I went to the Breakers hotel
shot a trunk show.
It was for the Schumacher family
the one’s with the Chevy cars-
The Shiny Sheet photographers
were on me, not very far.
I took photosof the Kanaris wedding
engagement party-photographed at the
Mar-A-Largo Clubvery interesting.
It was a fascinating
On Easter to take Donald Trump, and his wife
with Ron and Maya looking divine.
The Lake Worth Herald records events in Lake Worth town
Mark Easton works hard making sure Lake Worth Herald paper gets out.
It’s Wednesday afternoon and the printing press is running
all of Mark’s stories are real life, serious and also funny.
The Lake Worth Library had an article on me
I would be doing a reading by the Lake Worth library.
It was November 2006 and I was on Lake Worth Herald’s cover page
sitting on birthday chair where children celebrate their age.
Lake Worth Herald is printing my new poetry book
-the one you are reading- soon also on the Nook.
Mark was gracious and helped get my book right
he is friendly and easy to work
editing my book to make it out of sight!

We need to take back the land
WE have the upper hand.
We have power and authority in
Its not a game of chance like
A roll of the dice.
No- we are to have dominion of the earth
We had it once God gave us birth-
We just need to grab it by the horns
Say to Jesus, please forgive me—
I have sinned since I was born.
Our yokes are broken and we are
Not a slave to sin—
We are a new creature
With Jesus Christ we can win
Win over the enemy and
Take back the land—
We have victory already
For Jesus paid the price
He bought us through His blood
We should Thank Him more
When we get up and go to sleep
For He loves us as His creation
And His Word is a mystery which is deep.

As a child I remember those days
when Aunt Audrey would come from faraway.
Aunt Audrey was tall and wore jewelry like rings
she brought gifts and interesting things.
Aunt Audrey lived in Japan, the far east
she had an interesting life to say the least.
Her daughters Marlena and Renee
had played with us for a couple of days.
Then they would leave on a plane
I would see them again at an older age.
Uncle Norm I also saw when I was young
we traveled to Rhode Island when I was age 1.
Then I would see Aunt Audrey & Norm
in the sunshine state—
they lived in a development with wooden gates.
I celebrate Christmas and the holidays
with them and daughters Marlena and Renee.
They work in the movie business today
They have children and live in L.A.

Brenda who I saw in Star Bucks one day
is the most creative photographer who
and took a lot of great photos that glow.
I sat in birthday chair with glow in the dark lights–
Brenda knew how to photograph me just right.
Brenda is a sweetheart who has a big heart
her professional photos of me set her apart.
I wish you the best Brenda in your photography career
you have a lot of talent which is very debonair!
