    Smoky, your poetry always leaves me wanting more of your insight and abandon. I love your work. Poem Hunter: I
    am having trouble with reading poems on here of late. When I pull one up it goes before I am finished. Que past?

    I find your poetry beautiful because of the honest heart-truth in it and how spontaneously you lay out that truth in smooth flowing words. I wish I could learn that art!

    What can I say about Smokey, I know he is a great poet whose morals and positive outlook on life always shine through his words. His love for the great American Southwest which I share has endeared him to me. I can see his values and love for God in all his poetry. I just hope someday to be able to walk the Mojave with this poet who is such an inspiration t so many. Until that day pal, keep em flying.

    Continuous kindness, class, and deep thinking. That is what I know of Smoky Hoss. His name might convince you he has rough edges: but don't fall for that. He is a splendid writer and I'm glad I've come to know him here at poemhunter. You'll never regret reading his poetry; it will open your eyes to things you never suspected existed, to things you never gave much thought to before..he dreams hope into his messages to the reader, a valuable and lacking commodity in this age.

Best Poem of Smoky Hoss

Aging Poet

Come and see the old poet
Laying in his bed of ashes and dust,
His love in ruins
His mentality frozen by restless rust,
His hungry heart emptied of it's fertile blood
His souls melodic purpose nearly gone,
The mellifluous music now so silent
The end, of a once wonderful and powerful song.

What happened to this poet
With dread you may ask,
The ancient story ofcourse
The evils of age and wear, and so damned many things out there
Working away at his heart, fulfilling their wretched task.

When poets speak truth and beauty into this old ...

It's Never Shown

Long ago I submitted a poem
That has never here shown;
And I don't understand why...
It makes me cry.

Perhaps, had it shown
Then I would have known,
The spirit of pleasure
That words of another, alone can measure.
