Old L.A. 

 

Someone share your account
of what it used to be
fulfilling dreams and finding love
in and around the big city

What was it like
the transformation of this place
the mindset of the people
the looks on each face

And can we hope for a future
that emerges from these old streets
with changes that make sense
where all these souls meet.

Thanks for taking the time to read my latest poem. Sometimes, I get to go with my wife before the crack of dawn to get florals at the flower district in this part of Los Angeles. It is marvelous to see the big city wake up. 10 million folks in one place. Many more millions of dreams and stories of success and heartache and everything in between.

I have a family. I work with families. That's why I write about family. I'm a kidmin pastor by day, writer by night, delivery man for my wife's floral design business, and a picture-taker dude 24/7.
