The Art of Distinction - (see description) by 

To dance a tango when a waltz is playing
To wear blue jeans to a formal ball
To sing clear and loud what your heart is saying
To smile at strangers come one and all

To wash your car even though it is raining
To giggle some during somber talk
To take a nap a midst serious training
To skip along when the sign says walk

To whistle harmony with a bird singing
To write a thesis all in a rhyme
To listen closely when a bell is ringing
To hear the language of a mime

To speak the truth while all others are lying
To be a red leaf amongst all green
To stand out nicely without really trying
To be distinct is a good sight seen

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.

  • Hi ya Ray – really sorry it took so long to say thank you for your very supportive comment you left here. Between birthdays, Christmas, New Years I simply let some things pass me by on RB. All my fault!!! Always the best to you buddy.
