Biography of j l price
Poetry is one of my passions, I enjoy writing poetry, researching and reading other poets work as well.In the last three years, I have been able to find my purpose as a poet and it is truly to inspire readers with thoughts that are presented to me. Much of my time is given to mentor and assist young poets. I consider my own work an odd cross between Langston Hughes and Robert Frost. Yet, I don't run from it. I love elements of both of their works. If you keep those thoughts in mind you will see how they have influenced my writing. So I thank you for even just sharing a brief moment at my site. 'My best to you always' J. L.

In the eve of night, as dusk finally gives way to darkness, your tiny light first appears. You give us a show of light for the next several hours. Oh, what a sight it is! For those of us who grew up in the country, it is reminiscent because you spent so many evenings outside. Your true message is: summertime is here. Catch a firefly in your hand watch their tiny light glow. Allow them to use your finger as a runway and watch them take off. The firefly is not a speed merchant and it’s by design. When you observe many of them together their proximity to each other creates one of natures most beautiful and serene events. Firefly, Firely
I choose to reach out maybe touch some I’ll never meet Deep inside it’s my reward—it’s a self fulfilling treat This type of writing will never give me mass appeal That’s ok for me; it’s just me keeping things real

Keeping My Thoughts To Myself
Alone But Not Alone
There are times when you are among people yet all alone Times when you are out of place and wish you were home You must not get down, simply learn to enjoy more; yourself This person is in your corner much more than anyone else
Reflections In The Snow (Moving Away)
The reflection on the snow sends my mind to a distant place Many people to see and meet; most I don’t know their face Yet, I long to be in a place where there is much more activity A place where with a chance— where I can be what I want to be
We started out with nothing And our love grew into something Something that was time-tested And over the years, it’s now vested
Not one of us will ever be a finished product;
It’s has nothing to do with success or just luck

Even if you are an honest person tried and true
Success in life should not allow us to do as we please
Boasting and trying to bring others to their knees
Every one of us must continue to learn and improve
