My crippled poetry begins to dance
With the light of God's name.
His name brings the angel of my words 
Into the house of my mind.  --Rumi

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 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 book is to express myself with absolute authenticity.


It is my hope you will see a simple reality of life that will portray 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.

About Me

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. In 2015 I retired from practicing veterinary medicine to seriously focus on promising poet! 


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 strive to write positively, yet realistically.


Feel free to reach out! I'd love to answer your questions, or help you place on order!
