MY SUMMER HIDEAWAY
FRACKVILLE, PA
A PLACE TO RELAX
 
It is a pleasure to sit in a screened gazebo on a hot summer day and enjoy watching the presence of frisky squirrels and the chirping birds in the nearby trees.

Many ideas for the creation of my art work, writings, and woodcrafts originated while sitting in the solace of the gazebo located in our back yard

THE WAILING WIND, A TALE OF LOVE AND OBSESSION

JOSEPH T. RENALDI

PEACE         EVERYWHERE
 

 

 

Peace, everywhere, peace today!
Peace in lands of scruffy trees and pine,
Peace in lands of olives and wine,
Peace in lands where peaks are white,
Peace in lands where fields are bright.
Peace in lands of oasis and sand,
Peace in lands where people band,
Peace in lands where children play,
Peace in lands where people pray,
Peace in lands in the thick of the fight,
Peace in lands ruled by force and might.

Everywhere, everywhere, peace this day!
Pray that all world leaders lead the way,
Encouraging moral people to stand proud and tall,
No government too great, no nation too small.
