Biography of John Miller
John J. Miller lives in sunny St. George, Utah. He has been writing stories since sixth grade and writes because he loves writing. He is actively engaged in a writer’s group. In addition to writing flash fiction for his family and friends, he camps and hikes. When John needs to think through a story, he walks beside the river on one of the many city walking paths. He acquires ideas from observing people around him and, in general, everyday life.
The Muddy River
I stand upon the bank of the muddy river in awe of what I see.
The river’s roaring waters stumble over each other, rolling beneath its awesome force.
The river widens as the earth crumbles into it.
The power of the river amazes me; its shear force astonishes me,
And its quick movements mesmerize.
My mind drifts with the waters flow,
Traveling further and further downstream.
