My Poems


many people ask of me
why I write poetry
I write what is necessary
necessary and compelling
then use the dreams I have
to write the meat and filling
save some sugar for the top
my poetry shows an efficiency
it documents and illustrates
I make the columns narrow
and do not punctuate too much
I work to make words rhyme- 
some times 
where they form a texture
I want my words to form a picture
an image in your mind
Or my poems illustrate our human condition
both wealthy or depraved ones
like I share with you my Parkinson's 
and the pain I know
I share with you as my  PD grows
Mostly importantly
I want to share God with you
He loves me so
how very much you will never know
unless you believe and pray to Him
and listen to Him answer
Amen

Poem of the Day

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
