My family roots are in Texas and Arkansas(USA).
I was born in Texas and Marble Falls, Texas
Is my home town, though I was born in Hutto, Texas.
The family moved to Oregon when I was fourteen.
After I served several years in the US Navy,
I met my wife Ardelle of more than forty-six years.
We are retired and living in McMinnville, Oregon.
I started writing poetry in 2003 and can't say why.
I was sitting at the table one day and there was
A tablet and pencil lying before me, I began writing
And in a few minutes had written my first poem.
I trust my writing has improved since then.
As you read my poems, I hope they will arouse
Some type of emotional experience in you.
In my poetry you won't find "greeting card" rhymes,
My poems won't make you "feel good" all the time
But if they make you ponder, cry or smile
Then the writing was worth the while.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit,
I sure hope you have an enjoyable time.
Please feel free to email me anytime,
I'd sure like hearing from you.
"God bless you and I wish you health and happiness"
