Biography of Ben Gieske
I live in Bowling Green, Kentucky. As a former teacher, preacher, program director and grant writer, words have always occupied my time and efforts. I find poetry a challenge providing needed brain activity, enjoyment, and satisfaction. I hope to add to someone else's enjoyment as well. Some of my poems were published in Words Words Words; moonset THE NEWSPAPER, and HaikuWorld. Others will be published in foam: e, poetic hours, Pink Chameleon, Language and Culture, and The Tangled Web.

borne spontaneously on the wings of surprise,
concepted momentaneously in a universe of seemliness,
quivers ‘twixt both recognition and an instantaneous demise,
beckons to be echoed in my consciousness,
or even bequeathed eternity by God’s uncreated devise.
rambling through the corridors of my creation,
