Darren, your Garden shall grow, until it reaches the size of your heart, then I will lift you up and we shall Dance, for every flower I grew, it was to wash away one tear from you.
If you all look on the menu page STORIES, I have done a couple of posts for Darren! Of course I will provide a link below.
The first was Darren’s Garden of Eden and the second Gideon’s Law
Links to pages
I have received such a huge response and literally hundreds of emails, and I was very pleased people dropped by to read, however I was more than pleased only to know Darren appreciated the pages. So many people wished to add a little of their own garden, and so I decided to do so here.
With his permission, I will provide a little background that may help explain my admiration, of such a fine poet and humble young man. Darren is paralyzed from the waist down, he is autistic, and from various injuries is often in pain. Yet here he is, a radiant smile to all who approach him, a man who battles each day, to be here with us. I know he thinks I may be the wise one, but it is he who teaches me, each and every day. Now I have spoken of his ailments, only because they are persistent. However one is not defined by ones illness or predicaments.
I see Darren, as a wise man beyond his years. He speaks many languages, he is versed in music and. he can discuss any topic, and embrace any conversation. He is a man who builds poetic bridges, when so many admire men who wish to build walls. I truly find him a talented poet and his poems certainly humble me.
I will make this statement to all of the people who know him here; I don’t have to ask them if this is how they think, as I am sure of it. He is a man who brightens us all, who makes us think in softer tones, and brings us smiles.
So here in this blog, I too will add to the garden, and anyone at all who wishes so, send me your flowers, your garden photos, and I will post here for Darren. My desire is to bring to him a smile that he has shone upon on all of us.

Hi there, the blog has been running for almost a year, and as you can see I try to keep up a few posts a month. More about poetry and fellow poets, but also about current events, social issues as well as art and music. I look forward to any suggestions from readers and fellow poets!
