Love, Lust, Loved Laughter, Lessons

What The "L" Do You Know?

by Richard McPherson

Overview
Welcome to this book of Poetry: Love, Lust, Loved, Laughter and Lessons. It is my fervent hope and prayer that you will find some interesting in these poems and perhaps learn some life lessons in reading the rhyming poetry that has been more than a two decade adventure for me. Most all poems have been experienced by me in actual relationships or in deep emotional thoughts on events and experiences in life. I would suggest the way to read this book is to identify your feelings and find a corresponding poem that exhibits similar thoughts to assist you in going through your own feelings of Love, Lust or Loved relationships continuing also with the Laughter and Lessons chapters. Prayerfully, I hope you will learn the lessons on a deep and existing level. Perhaps you will not reserve the need or desire to experience the lesson if you read and understand the reasoning that led me to the written conclusions illustrated in these chapters.
Description
Welcome to this book of Poetry: Love, Lust, Loved, Laughter and Lessons. It is my fervent hope and prayer that you will find some interesting in these poems and perhaps learn some life lessons in reading the rhyming poetry that has been more than a two decade adventure for me. Most all poems have been experienced by me in actual relationships or in deep emotional thoughts on events and experiences in life. I would suggest the way to read this book is to identify your feelings and find a corresponding poem that exhibits similar thoughts to assist you in going through your own feelings of Love, Lust or Loved relationships continuing also with the Laughter and Lessons chapters. Prayerfully, I hope you will learn the lessons on a deep and existing level. Perhaps you will not reserve the need or desire to experience the lesson if you read and understand the reasoning that led me to the written conclusions illustrated in these chapters. I started with the inclination of naming this book: "What the "L" do you know? Of course referring to the beginning letter of each chapter and recalls an old crude statement known as [What the "hell" do you know?] On some level this appeals to the fun loving side of me as a fun loving story and joke teller. You may ask what are my qualifications to write these poems and to present them to you, the reader, as lessons and funny experiences from which you may learn life lessons. I believe age doesn't qualify anyone for anything other than aching joints, unstable bowel movements, loss of friends, loves and probably unmet needs and dreams. But on the other hand what such great memories, exciting experiences and valuable lessons that have been learned in costly, hard learned adventures and mistakes in approximately seven decades of life. As a very spiritual and religious follower of Jesus Christ I have read many of the great spiritual leaders of the past two thousand years. I developed a personal philosophy concerning my earthly existence. I feel and think that as a heavenly tiny spiritual being having the ability to view the entire past as well as the future from heaven and knowing full well all the trials and task I would need to contend with in my earthly human existence. I chose my own parents, I fully knew what I would be asked to endure, to face and what trials I'd contend with daily throughout my life. What makes me a success is that I've met all of those challenges with at least a fair attitude and appreciation for the experience and the lessons learned. Hopefully I have been able to do this with a tongue in cheek manner of happiness and joy. For a more complete understanding perhaps you'd better understand me and my journey if you take a brief look at my attached biography and the life experiences paper titled, "I know this man:". Again my hope is that you will learn and grow, as have I. Most importantly to use a quote from Dr. Wayne Dyer "Don't die with your music inside you".
