In the middle of the night He once again awakes But this time is different No pain... No demons No darkness He sits quietly Wondering if this is real Or just a wonderful dream He doesn't really care Because he loves what he feels ~The Tennessee Poet~ ©Walt Page 2018 All Rights Reserved
So many voices haunting him Pushing him back against the cliffs Along the shore of his lies Nowhere to run Nowhere to hide His legs too weak To climb the cliffs The ocean currents Would pull him under So he leans back The rocky walls Cutting into his back And he waits For his poet...

First snow came today Slowly falling from above Fall, where did you go ~The Tennessee Poet~ ©Walt Page 2018 All Rights Reserved
A wonderful Christmas poem from keithgarrettpoetry.
A PICTURE OF CHRISTMAS
Trees of white standing under the falling snow,
Sleigh rides through the woods, just you and I.
Roasted chestnuts and a sip of rum in the night,
A log on the fire and music so fine.
Listen to the church bells as they ring in the sky,
Carolers door to door, singing in the night.

From rooftops on the streets,
The smell of Gingerbread baking through an open window tonight.
A picture of Christmas seen in the eyes of young and old,
Feel the spirit from once long ago.

Tell us a bit about yourself, Walt
I have been called The Tennessee Poet, and I guess you would say a romantic old rock drummer, musician, US Air Force veteran and an open heart surgery survivor.

I started Walt’s Writings On Life in April, 2017. I had gone through several months of recovery and cardiac rehab after my open heart surgery. I was limited in what the doctors would let me do so I started writing again. I had always been writing and had written…
