About Me and My Poetry

Born in Springfield Missouri now residing in Mercer, Missouri. Have been reading and writing poetry since 1957. I am drawn to writing at times, my poem: "Blank Piece of Paper" was an early poem and so typical of my analytical mind pulling from deep roots of self-understanding! Some of my poems like Old Fisherman are from my travels and studies in Greece plus experiences. Some are just silly like a song that I make up out of nowhere. I am retired and my hobbies are photography, painting, crafts, woodcarving, and still....writing. Thank you

But failing within, her leaders askew,

A funny conversation, limerick style, between father and son,  do not read the part in parenthesis. 
(Dad): "What are you gonna be when you grow up?"
(Son) "I ought to be exactly what I am!
