    Chris Embrick, a great poet. He writes poems that are inspiring and captivating. A friend and a brother in Christ. His passion and compassion as demonstrated in his poems are indeed attributes of a great poet. It as a pleasure for me to be acquainted with such a humble spirit in this fellow former teacher. I'm sure he has made a lasting impact to his former students. His children are lucky to have him as a father. May God continue to bless you my brother from another mother. Do continue writing!

    Chris Embrick born on 27th March 1952 in Commerce, Georgia of United States is a brilliant, multi-talented and deeply philosophical poet of today's leading poetic world. He is a retired high school science teacher and he has lots of school memories with students and deep knowledge about teaching and science. He writes beautiful poems straight from his deep core of soul. His mind is tender in expression and he has positive vision for society. He writes poems about nature, beauty, love, life, society. social behavior, science, religion and spirituality. His many of poems carry deep philosophical essence and his poems basing on perception of the Holy Bible are really heart touching and these carry values for humanity. I have gone through many of his poems and reviewed them are really poetic gems. I am completely astonished finding deep philosophical and natural skill within his poems. He has created many valuable poems are definitely beneficial for society. From the deepest core of my heart I convey my best wishes to him. May flowers sprinkle fragrance in his way of walking! May God bring fortune and happiness for him in the way of success in literary perseverance and life!

Best Poem of Chris Embrick

Losing My Way

Blue skies gave way to hues of gold
As I surveyed the forest deep
Well beyond my intended stroll

Ahead I heard the river's sound
And knowing I had lost my way
Well past the time to turn around

The fears of life my mind restrained
No hurry yet, to leave such peace
For life's direction to regain

From Nature's bounty peace borrowed
Along the path hardships strewn
New hope, new strength, for tomorrow

Above the trees a dim half-moon
I lost desire to get home soon.
