I was raised on a dairy farm in central Minnesota. Joined the Army at 17 and landed in Vietnam in May 1966. I later joined the Air Force and retired in 1990. I then worked for the Veteran's Administration in Salt Lake City, Utah for 18 years, retiring in 2009. My wife is from Thailand, we have been married 45 years. Along the way, we raised three children. I enjoy playing chess, writing poems and quotes.

He demonstrates a growing sense of political involvement and fairness. He rightly criticized Trump for seeming not to care enough about Covid-19, which is true. Darwin is writing with growing confidence and awareness of life's complexities.

Darwin keeps on writing just the same, through his various cancer treatments. I hope that immunotherapy is the final answer to the disease. Chemotherapy is too rigorous by far.

Prayers for our dear brother and friend as he begins his next treatment with immunotheraphy. Pray for strength and added years of good health. His poetry has touched this hectic world that we live in and has caused us to believe and not to faint. God bless you and shine down on you all your days.

I am pleased to read Kumarmani Mahakul's title of 'Endless Lexicon' for Darwin. Darwin writes from a varied life story; few writers had personal experience of the Vietnam War as he did. He also has a wide array of other subjects to write about, which he uses to advantage.

when I need to clear the swirl of troubling thoughts failing to re-form them to a tender telling couplet a wise voice whispers – let go.. there’s a time to bide to spend with those who are not tongued tied nor bound by the fruitless pursuit of the sublime for there’s more or less to poetry than a clever rhyme Its then, I turn to those to whom I’m due and offer thanks to those with a steadier hand to craft their lines like Hank

I have enjoyed reading my brothers poems. He is the oldest child in our family of 9 growing up. He is making us proud as he has developed his talent as a deep, physiological writer. His poems cause many questions to arise and interesting conversation developes as we contemplate the meaning and theme behind the writer and what he is wanting to convey. We cherish him and honor him.

Darwin is very much an American poet, but also a citizen of the world. His poems are mainly about modern, important issues, which he expresses clearly, not too many words but sparkling imagery. One of the finest poets writing in the U.S.today.
