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
