I am happy to introduce Sylvester L. Anderson.
I have been following him for quite a while and I really enjoy his poetry, I’m sure you will too.
At times we are like baby birds in a nest
Crying out and waiting to be fed
We know that day will come soon
When we must sum up the courage and take flight
Yes we feel all too secure in the confines of our nest
Afraid to seek out and discover the gift of life
Yet the time will come one day baby bird
And your wings will be fully capable of carrying you
On that day let go of your fear
Take flight and spread your wings
Soar through the spacious skies and glide with the gentle winds
Trust in a loving God
And discover his gift of life
Sylvester L. Anderson – bio
I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. I started writing poetry in high school and had a love for creating with words. I grew up listening to top 40 radio, where the music was so diverse in style, sound, and lyrics. I count The Beatles as one of my influences. In October of 2012, I published my first poetry collection “Life through Celestial Lenses”. It was a blessing to accomplish this. Something I had been striving for since after high school. In May of 2013, I published my second poetry collection, “The Darkness, The Light, And the Glory”, and in March of this year, 2015, I publish my third collection “Heartspeak ~ God and Love”. I write to inspire and to share God’s love and light, and occasionally poke fun at myself. My books can be found at
I have met so many wonderful souls (yourself included, Helle) through blogging, writing, and sharing the love of poetry. I appreciate everyone’s style, passion, and reason for writing. You can find me on several different blogs, but mainly at WordPress and Twitter.
