This is loose collection of my poems.  My first writing was poetry, but I was never able to understand how to write poetry or why one worked and another did not.  But I thought in poems, in short dense bursts and could not imagine writing stories or novels.  Somewhere in my 30s that changed. But I still write a poem when a situation demands,though I still make no claim to actually being a poet.  It has been a very long time since I last tried to get a poem published.  I am just too lazy to keep track of submissions.  But I offer them here on my turf where you have seeking my writing or something about me.  I hope you enjoy and find something of worth to you.  Most of the poems will have a little note at the bottom, so make sure you scroll down.
