Published by Xlibris
I began writing song lyric, then came poetry, and short stories, some 40-years-ago. When I was 10-years-old. During the sixties, and in high school, I had the privilege of meeting Poet Laureate of the United States, Mr. Robert Frost. He spoke with me discussing my poetry and my ideas. He told me to
keep writing and reading, and as I continued I would learn so much more, and eventually become a published poet.

I have continued writing lyrics, poetry, and short stories. I am now 64-years old, and I am published. I have always told other poets and writers to keep on writing, and learning about the many different styles of the written arts.

The way I see writing poetry is a likeness to a photograph of a moment, a dream, a place, and a thing, a memory good or not so good. Life comes at us in many different ways, sometimes in many different ways at once. It’s the situations that arise, the masks some people wear, the way they talk and rub shoulders with everybody. These things make up the poetry I write. When you sit down and look at life you’ll find it’s much bigger than just us. This is poetry, lyric writing, short stories from the imagination, journalism, and actually all the arts, they are great love affairs with life.

I have found all things good in the written arts, even when I’m turned down by an editor. It’s all learning and enjoying what you do. So choose a photograph of a moment, a dream, or a situation, and then write about it. Create picture with words of description. I live a simple life as a Disabled Veteran of the U.S.M.C., and the Vietnam War. However, I am simply who I am, and I don’t try to say I’m someone else. I am a human being who loves the arts. My message to you all whom read this is KEEP ON WRITING; KEEP ON KEEPING ON.
