Holding it In

Sometime it is better to just hold it in, rather than speak it.  We hold in feelings.

Holy Father

While working at Mississippi Valley State University, I met  a man  who said, he had a piece of wood I could have.  He said it came out of a church. People often give me wood,  which I sometime use later so I accepted it.  In the wood I saw a cross with people looking toward it, and  black angels hovering overhead. There was also a pulpit.

I Too Am America

You see me as half of man. My hair looks to you like jail cells.  I am a patriot. I served. I am holy, I too am America.

A Piece for Daddy

I was a little boy riding in the truck with daddy.  I spotted this piece of wood in a pond and wanted it.  Daddy went into the water and got this piece of wood for me.  I carved it for him.

He Heard My Cry

This work is from driftwood.  While I was carving it, I played the blues.  When I finished, I heard the spiritual "I Know the Lord He Heard My Cry."
