My wife, Jeanie, is where a lot of my inspiration comes from for my poems. But a lot of things in life also catch my minds eye.

I enjoy travel, writing poems, short stories and life.

I was born in the south. Lived on a farm and really loved it. The work nor chores bothered me. It was a way of life that everybody did back then. At the age of 7 we had come north to Flint, Mi. My father was an Ordained Minister. As were my grandfather and 2 uncles. I didn't know much of any other way of life.

I grew up with pets of many types. Birds, cats, dogs, squirrels, guinea pigs as well as others. Some of our birds were pals with our cats and some cats were friends with my pet hampsters. It showed me a lot about how to get along with something or someone who was different in one way or another.

I had a teacher in 5th grade that got me interested in poetry. She told me not to try to write like anyone else but to write from the heart. For upteen years thats what I did. I still do. But I met Denny Lyon and Vera G on line and I owe a lot to them for there input to my writing because they opened my eyes to help me improve. For this I owe them a very heartfelt Thank You.

I hope that anyone who picks up a pen will be inspired by someone whom they will respect and honor for the teachings they offer.
