Biography of Bob Blackwell
I have always had an urge to write but it was only recently I convinced myself that I could. The poems on this site are my first attempts. I prefer to write in prose to rhyme. I intend to continue as it has given me more pleasure than anything else I have experienced. I strongly believe that we are all citizens of this world and we all deserve a fair chance at its spoils. If we take time to enjoy each moment as it comes we will all notice that we live in a wonderful world. I am interested in both Western and Eastern Philosophy, I am in love with nature and spend as much time as possible outdoors, inhaling the natural air and beauty all around.

As I reflect on what has gone before, I consider, hopes and dreams both past and present, some dreams fulfilled, others broken, elapsed,
! ! Oneness
Our walk to discovery was blessed, with a silence wrapped in music, the songs,
Controlled by ego, driven by want, dogged by desire, blinded by guile, fail to see most of life’s attractions, Unseen natures, beauty, charm, style,
Seek and your life becomes clear,
Have no penitence, doubt or fear.
Unwind relax, and let the present flow,
The qualms, guilt and regret so
Worthless; they must go.
Now; thoughts free, no despair
No doubts, worries, to repair.
Be free, let go, yours words will prove,
You travel to a different grove,
