I am cursed. I am a poet. There are no voluntary poets. I don't know about poets who have to write poems, and then we are determined to try to get someone to read them even though we don't care what anyone thinks about our poems ... because we had to write them anyway.

If you say my poems paint some true aspect of life and have special meaning for you, then I can die happy. My work has succeeded. It's a pretty simple life.

There are three rules to writing poetry.

I have already mentioned one is that you HAVE to write poems. The great poet, Winnie the Pooh, best illustrates two and three.

The second rule: Pooh said, "And that's the whole poem. Do you like it, Piglet?"

"All except the shillings," said Piglet. "I don't think they ought to be there."

"They wanted to come in after the pounds," explained Pooh, "so I let them. It is the best way to write poetry, letting things come."

The third rule: Pooh later added, "Because Poetry and Hums aren't things that you get, they're things that get you. And all you can do is go where they can find you."

I hope you will read my books and they will wake you up and you will see an interesting, different, imaginative perspective on everyday life events that will help you will find more purpose and meaning to your everyday existence even though some of them don't rhyme.

I want you to be able to take these books, open them anywhere and find a verse that is understandable and thought provoking. If that is the case, then I have done everything I set out to do. At no point is it necessary for you to agree with me. My personal goal for each bookis to express myself with absolute authenticity. I hope you will see in these a simple reality of life that will show me as kindred spirit or at least a truthful observer of the common lives that we all lead.

Please read a few examples of my poems. Blessings to you all, and thanks for your support.

Distillations of a Life Just Lived

Poetry

These verses are dedicated to every person over 40 years old who woke up one morning, admitted they were not living the life they really thought they should and, without hurting anybody else, did something about it. You are my heroes.

I have spent my entire life searching for who I am. These poems are tracks marking the happy meandering path of ongoing discovery. Born in 1950, I grew up on a farm-ranch in Lobo Valley thirteen miles south of Van Horn in far West Texas. This is nowhere close to Ft. Worth.

I went to college and graduated from the veterinary school at Texas A& M University in 1973 about the same year I started writing or at least keeping my poems. I have been a practicing veterinarian and a “promising” poet for each of those many years.

Most of the poetry that I receive is about the relationship of man/woman, nature, and the Universal Intelligence that shows us how to operate our world. I try to write poems that are little verbal clips of life’s everyday events. I want to write positively and yet realistically.

I want you to be able to take this book and open it anywhere and find a verse that is understandable and thought provoking. If that is the case then I have done everything I set out to do. At no point is it necessary for you to agree with me. Stimulating your thought is positively heaven for me.

Down to Earth Poetry ...

from breaking new ground to harvesting the crop
Poetry

Just randomly crack this book open three times and read the poems that you serendipitously turn to. If you relate to them, just about every one of them is coming in the same door. They are coming individually, single file, representing little life events that brought me a poem. That seems to be the way my life is unfolding. A long series of single moment events-some lived and enjoyed well, some poorly.

My poems are my life events. Real and imagined, they are converted to word  pictures that I seem destined to develop and determined to share.

I hope you benefit. I hope you enjoy. I hope you will read my poem elections below.

Taking a Peek ...

poetry cracking the door but afraid to open it
Poetry

This book is dedicated to all sensitive people, who tempered by compassion and common sense, are willing to express their feelings truthfully and honestly.

My work as a poet is to take reality, mix it with imagination, stir vigorously and create my rhythmic interpretations as truly and boldly as I can.

If you come to one of my readings I will tell you that I am a graduate of the Winnie the Pooh school of poetry. Pooh only had two rules for writing poetry: (1) Go where the Poetry and Hums can find you and (2) when they come let them come and that includes words like shillings. So I have. Sort of.

Making an exorbitant living for my family to have the financial wherewithal to eat, live, and be entertained and educated at a level that has agreed with them has cut down significantly in my going in search of Poetry and Hum sites.

Sometimes, when words have wanted to come in that would have been much more questionable to Piglet than shillings, I have slammed the door and proceeded to seek alternative reputation and persona saving linguistics. Violating a Pooh rule and messing up some good poems.

But I am getting better. I now have three books of poetry exposed. Two hundred forty plus poems trying to tell the truth as I see it. Varnished slightly.
