The Supreme Benchmark of Love_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Why Sandra Day O'Connor's decision to retire is noteworthy
Judge Sandra Day is on her way
to leave the court behind
O'Connor, whom she dearly loves,
is lost within his mind.
She's taking time to ease John's climb
toward Alzheimer's peak.
It is a slippery scary slope
and she knows he is weak.
She's laying down her judge's gown
to claim a walking stick
that she might be the stable force
for one who's awfully sick.
In Sandra Day I see love's way
of putting others first.
It dies to self and offers help
to quench another's thirst.

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.
