About Me and My Poetry

I am 66yrs. of age. I am a widower, having lost my wife in 2010. We were married 41yrs. I have a daughter and son. I am a disabled Vietnam veteran. Wounded in Vietnam in 1968. Over the years I have had several professions. The one profession I am most proud of is as a Federal Police Officer. I retired from the profession in 2003. My wife and I had lived in Missouri and Illinois. When I retired we moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. We spent 7 yrs. there. When my wife died I moved back to Missouri, to my roots I started writing poetry in 1969 for my wife. She still is an inspiration for me.I love her heart and soul. My poetry revolves around my life experiences. I focus on the human condition and those tangible and intangible effects this life as on us.

  A quiet splender fell to Earth, glistening in the Moon's glow,
feathers of purest white caressed the ground with a
blanket of silence

As the night's blanket ascends to the heavens, like Angels taking flight
I awake from my slumber in fitful fright
For where is my love? Gone from my sight!

With my gaze to Heaven, in desperate search of serene contentment,
my eyes found Eagles, soaring on the Breath of God

What unknown horror lies in wait in the darkness
Darkness should be a friend but in that shadowless
realm, evil weaves it's web to imprison your soul

Am I something or nothing at all,
Are my words something or nothing at all,
Am I worthy to some or unworthy to all,
