Recently one of my students, an attorney who represents death row inmates, responded to a comment I’d made in class about his writing: “Oh, I see,” he said, biting his lip and scratching his head. “This is an AFOG!”

A Song To Remember

Thinking of you,I waited and waited into the stillness of the night,

Until dawn came and covered me with a mantle of golden light

It washed away all my wishes,hopes and prayers of last night

Although I tried but in vain, your thoughts gently swept in.

All those moments, all those memories-

Flashed across my mind.…
