Bound for the Beach_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Combing the Sand for the Secret to a Popular Diet We’re South Beach bound (but not for sun).
Our waves of fat are why.
We can’t fit in our bathing suits.
The scale goes much too high.

And so we’re headed for the Beach
just like we used to go
for Scarsdale, Atkins, Jenny Craig
and others we all know.

Will this excursion turn the tide?
Will weight-loss be in store?
Or will this South Beach rendezvous
just leave us like before?

The answer lies in low-carb foods
and shunning processed snacks.
It has to do with nuts and cheese
we’ve stashed inside our packs.

But there is more to losing weight
than saying no to fries.
The Beach is best when we say yes
to daily exercise.

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009

Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
