Profile Information

 I have been writing poetry since January 2004. I do not consider myself to possess any true poetic genius. I do however, create based upon my inner most feelings pertaining to the subject or the time. My expressions are my own and are often simple ramblings. What I write is what my mind has conceived and considers good work. Otherwise, what is the purpose of writing in the first place?

I retired from the Navy in 1995. In my years of service, I was witness to many changes and attitudes both positive and negative. My writing often reflects the experiences and opinions formed through these interactions.


My poetry does not focus on one topic, but is a collection of various themes such as related to history, nature, or patriotism. I try to write poetry everyone can read and understand. I avoid the use of million dollar words and prefer to leave them to the most intellectual of poets; of whose work I seldom read or understand. If greatness lies in the ability to write poetry that cannot be enjoyed by all, I elect to pass, and will forever remain an insignificant, happy man.
