Happy Birthday to J. Glenn Evans, Poet, Novelist and Political Activist

That time that comes
and so quickly goes
Christmastime that reminds
me of so long ago
Mother and father
sisters and brothers
all huddled around
our separate piles
with smiles
Oh such joy
that brief glimpse
peeked through
the curtain of time
when we were young
and they were old
Now we are old
and they are gone

REVIEW: Janice L. Loper 5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional. Truthful. Intensely absorbing. Eloquent. November 29, 2018 Format: Kindle Edition You get such an emotional response from each page. Your mind shouts, “Yes, This is truth.” As you read. Some passages leave you bleeding and stunned. Others have you shaking your head. These collections and musings are quite stirring. The truth can be quite ugly.
