Poetry to me is emotion. Writing it so the reader feels the emotion is my goal.  I base my poetry on my life and experiences of others near to me. Upon occasion, written from sheer whimsy.
Life, love, pain, frustration & despair make up my portfolio. Some poems you may find will help you deal with your life, at least let you know you are not alone in this world.
January 2020 I self-published a softcover book of 75+ poems. It is available for $15 + $6 S&H. Text me with subject "Book Purchase" to get a copy.
I really value all of your comments & reviews of my poems.
