Biography of cheryl davis miller
I'm married,41 years. I have 2 grown daughters, and 3 grandchildren. I live on a small farm in Ohio.Where we raise cattle, [beef] chickens, a garden and pets.
Came from W.Va. I still consider it home, and write often of my appalachian roots.
My parents divorced when I was one, and I was given to an Aunt to raise.
At 13, she thought I needed to be with my 'real' mother.
At 14, my 'real mother', thought I would do better with an older brother.
At 14 yrs. and 2 mos. I decided, I would do better on my own. So I lived many lives in the next 5 yrs, until I married.
Since then I have lived a quiet life.I have scribbled since I was a child.
Learned to read, prior to entering school, from looking at poems my mother had read to me, and I had memorized.
My daughters show no interest, but grandchildren may! I hope anyway!

I Love The Tender Blooms
I love the tender blossoms.
So I wait, expectantly.
For each precious bloom to open
and lift their face toward Me.
I adore every petal.
No two blooms are quite the same
My hand tends and trains the tendrils,
and I call each one by name.
