(In memory of Leonard Nimoy, d. 2/27/2015)

Our old friend, Leonard Nimoy,

Whose characters filled us with joy…

From black and white

To color done right,

He played both violent and coy.

He was more than an aging SPOCK,

But gave PERRY MASON a sock…

Brought to justice

Despite the insists

That the whole of his guilt was a crock.

Leonard Nimoy and NOVA*

Was natural for any space rover…

His vocation

Often narration,

A combination that won us over!

Oft portraying an outsider,

His career spread much wider…

Writing, directing

Oft intersecting

Weaving his plots like a spider.

But MR. SPOCK was the role

For “hundreds of years” extolled…


Various incarnations,

But hardly this actor’s whole.

–Jonathan Caswell

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
