About Me
I am a retired carpenter/cabinetmaker of 42 years, now residing in Virginia.  I have lived all over this country; New Hampshire [born and raised], Oregon [27 years], California [time there doesn't count, too short], Alaska [two years], Texas [6 years]and now Virginia [6 years].  All have their own special beauty and yes, that includes Texas; though there, it is sometimes hard to spot.  Married for 36 years as of 9-12, 2012.  The national 9-11 was our 25th wedding anniversary.  I enjoy writing poetry that makes people think and discover things about themselves that they might not have been aware of in their lives. I enjoy humor, philosophy, religious, nature, and beauty in poetry.   I "march to a different drum beat" than a lot of people, but than , don't most poets?  Though not meant to offend, a few of my poems do have words in then that might.  If you read the poem though, you will find that the words are essential to show what I am trying to express.  Most ... are used to show the growth within myself.  They are NEVER meant to offend.  I will not do that.  If, by some chance they do, please write to me and I will apologize and explain why I felt them necessary.  Right now, I can think of only one that might.  Please feel free to comment on any of my poems.  I may listen to you.  I may ignore youBut, I will read what you have to sayDepends mostly on my mood.     ;-)
I have been published in a newspaper, The Springfield Journal, Springfield, Mass, and in an anthology put out by a nudist magazine.  I didn't realize it when I said, "yes," to their asking if my poem "Skinny Dip" could be in their anthology, but it was a very illustrated anthology.  (Very illustrated.   I keep it in a brown bag in my underwear drawer.)


Henry Longfellow had a beard
as well as lockets of gray.
Walt Whitman's beard was gray with age,
his hair uncombed by day.
I have a beard with gray and black,
but little hair on my head.
I may have to await a poet's fame
‘cause most great poets are dead.
