Along The Way by Roger Sampson

The Spring brings the dream, my Shenandoah Valley dream.
With eyes closed and heart listening I hear so clearly the Blue Ridge
Mountains, the pastures green, the acoustic chords of Virginia calling
me home. Strawberries and shortcake, freshly pressed apple cider
and so much more awaits me there. I will be on a path crossing a
creek and stop on a footbridge to look into my lover’s eyes, a distant
church bell will toll and I will know that my dream has come true.

A magical little place in Virginia, USA… some call it Heaven.

Just a guy who loves to write; poetry, lyrics, short stories and random thoughts… it is my passion. Photography is my second passion as I love to capture the world around me… to make time stop and to savor a subject forever.
