With toothy grin and frog in hand
I will not skip ‘til I kiss again
If by chance that I might win
A strong, loving, beautiful man
Or charming prince from foreign land
Kissy kiss kiss

Become a prince to live with me
Four. Five. Six.
Oh dream come true supply my wish
Skip seven. (oh, wouldn’t it be heaven)
Eight. Nine. Ten.
Wonder should I try again?
Toss a rock for another hop
Kissy kiss kiss


Practicing presence and expression in different forms, James loves the melody of a well spoken line. His highest goal in writing is to foster a sense of play and wonder in all things. He is inspired by simple things, like nature, discovery, people, daydreams, and irony.
