After The Thunder

I hear the sounds of distant thunder

It approaches like death


But approaching

Far away

But getting closer

I see the flash of lightning

Striking near

Like pain

Coming closer

I feel the wind growing strong

And my body growing weaker

Now comes the rain

To wash away

A life of dreams

I wish the world

A safe goodbye

And no regrets

Someday I too will leave

With one last breathe

And a long regretful sigh

Being glad I passed this way

But not yet

I made it through college, started at Pace in New York, family seemed to think I needed a business degree. I didn't last long, two double periods of accounting a week and I was off to N.Y. U. To make a long story short ( too late for that) I graduated from UCLA and actually, my biggest kick out of that is just saying, especially here on the east coast UCLA, but I could care less, been in Boston since 1975, though I was coming for a year or so. A very good friend at the time, she said to me "Dan you'll never leave Boston" so dear Florida “Sun Spot Baby" you're down there, been in and out of radio, TV, acting and that's me in a nut shell.


  1. Dan,

    Thank you for this effort.
