Biography of Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson poet

Born in the small rural town of, Ripley, Tennessee, on November 21,1961. Pewee only weighed 3 lb.3 oz. She was so tiny that her mother had to use men's handkerchiefs for diapers on her. She was the youngest of three children, born to, Peggy Ann Hale, and Raymond Hale. At 5 months of age her parents moved the family to, Chicago, IL. where, Pewee, would live most of her life until she was 20 yrs. Old and she, and her mother made their final, and permanent move to Tennessee. She did live in Memphis, Tennessee for a brief time during the 70's.
Her mother was Cherokee, Apache, and Creek Indian, as well as French, Irish, Jewish, German, and Portuguese. Her father whose people hail from England, and are of noble lineage was of course of English decent. She wrote a gossip column for, 'The Crockett Times', in the mid 80's, her pay was a free newspaper each week. She was also a weather watcher for channel 13 TV of Memphis, Tennessee, and channel 7 of Jackson, Tennessee. The meteorologists for those channels were, Jim Jaggers, and Gary Pickens. She wed on 11-26-86 to Mr. Ricky Sherman Johnson, of Maury City, Tennessee. On April 27,1991 She gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Skylar Ricky Harris Johnson. She got her first poem published in an anthology in 1997, and has had numerous poems published since. She has also won several awards, and has somewhat of a fan follow. She loves all animals, and has many. Her favorite animal is an iguana. She loves to read mysteries, and horror books. She began writing back in 1970. When writing a poem she is known to first make a draft, and then treat the poem like a puzzle, she slowly tear it down, and then proceeds to build it into a picture which she hopes will then be seen as art to those who read it. A lot of people think they can't write poetry. What then is poetry, but words to say what is in one's heart. Pewee, is also a compition photograph, and has had one of her favorite picture entitled - 'Sleep My Precious Sky' published in the anthology 'A New Begining' which came out, April 2005.

Belle Etoile - My Star

Belle Etoile, Belle Etoile, my most Belle Etoile, the glorious Etoile,
you my, Beautiful Star, my show horse, are my pride and joy.
You came from Heaven on a thunder of smoke,
and as you gently whined into a gallop you broke.
You whisked through the night,
your eyes shined like big heavenly light.
Belle Etoile, Belle Etoile, the most beautiful star of the night,
will forever shine within my sight.
