A Super Man Nonetheless_Greg Asimakoupoulos-Remembering the Resilient Christopher Reeve We pause to grieve
because Chris Reeve
just lost his earthly life.
This super man
had countless fans
and one heroic wife.
Chris let us see
he WAS a man of steel.
Though paralyzed
he realized
what matters most is will.
And though confined
he never whined
about his tragic plight.
He learned to cope
while boasting hope
that day would follow night.
But with the dawn
we learned he'd gone
unlike the way he'd planned.
His dream to walk
by death was blocked.
Still Chris WAS Superman.

Occasionally Greg A. makes my blood pressure rise, but more than most writers he often, like today, brings a lump to my throat.

I am alway amazed by Greg's way with words. This was an exceptional tribute to a man who just wouldn't quit - regardless of the hurdles in his path. He had a supporting family which goes a long way in keeping one's spirits up. From one who knows, though not to the extent of his trials.

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
