Poems by P Janean Knowles

The Night

Silently I go unto the night,
My dreams take me into the light.

God is beside me through my trials and joys,
He gently guides me with grace and poise.

As I drift dreamingly up above,
I am constantly reminded of his love.

Now looking down on my body below,
I thank him for all his blessings bestowed.

P Janean Knowles recommends:

Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
Reason: One can read it once and get depth and insight to their life. Then one can reread it at various times in ones life and get more insight. It is a wonderful book to have around and read over and over again.

Recommendations for writers:

I think that the use of imagery is important in writing. The work should relate feelings, or share an experience which you have had. The work should touch someone else's heart or stimulate their mind to thinking.
