A Cool Place on a Hot Day
A Cool Place on a Hot Day_Greg Asimakoupoulos-A tribute to Chicago's Wrigley FieldIt is a place where ivy grows.
A field of dreams where Santo knows
that baseball fans of every team
can't help but feel at home.

It is a park where home runs sail
when fly balls catch a west-east gale.
The Friendly Confines really are
when home team bats prevail.

It is a refuge near the Lake
with class and charm much like The Drake*
that calls to mind the glory years
that made Chicago great.

It is a storied stadium
the oldest park except for one
and that one boasts a monster green
where Boston's Red Sox rule.

But give me Wrigley any day
where Lou Paniella's Cubbies play
for win or lose in hot July
it's cool just being there.

* The Drake is a historic luxury hotel on the lakefront in Chicago

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
