Biography of John McCornack
Do you like Red Dirt Poetry? Do you love to walk a red dirt road and feel a fence post. If you do, you have come to the right place.
I am a Caterpillar Engineer by training, but my primary love is photography. I spend many hours traveling down the backroads in my home state of Oklahoma, looking for that special sunset, old barn, or a windmill. Many of my photographs are available for viewing on various internet sites. In general my poems are short and to the point. Most were written to illustrate my photography.
I have over 2000 web pages, all of which include poetry from various poets who have writen poems to illustrate my photos. My Home Page may be found at
Cloud Chief Horses
I never had a horse at Cloud Chief
Even though horses were in season
My dad would say I ate like a horse
So to save food that was the reason
I guess it was either me or a horse
My dad had an horse in early days
Must of had more food in his time
Good reason to love his yesterdays
