Hey all my fellow poetry people. I’m running a little group poem over on my Facebook author page. Basically, I’m trying to get a bunch of people to contribute a line or two to a poem. Go over and check it out at the link below. If you decide to participate, be sure to like my page so I can tag you when the poem is done. Also, make sure to read the full post before participating. As always, stay focused and write on!
I mentioned that I had a poetry book published. It’s not full length, but you still get plenty of verse for the cost. Check it out on Amazon here:
You can also get it from my publisher here:

I mentioned submitting to this collaborative poem sponsored by Indiana’s poet laureate. I’m happy to say some of my lines made it in. Check it out. It’s a beast of a poem but pretty cool. Stay Focused and Write On!
Here’s a little something I carved out of the advice column in the local newspaper the other day. Stay Focused and Write On!
Verbal and emotional incompatibility
can leave you high and dry,
Which negatively affects better solutions.
This combination of sacrifices leaves no reward,
for keeping your expectations in check,
and can cause a lot of grief in the long run
It’s been a minute since my last post. I was on vacation, so I didn’t get much time to do all the social media stuff. But I’m back at it now. I did manage to finish a rough draft of a short story and submit a few lines of poetry to Project 411, which I mentioned previously.
Anyway, here’s another cut up for your enjoyment. Stay Focused and Write On!
We must always view our potential as a whole problem
The question is, how to witness the overall layout from within?
The best we can hope to do,
given the circumstances,
is cash out before the situation is dispersed beyond our sight.
Another week is in the books. I’m working on getting a few lines of poetry together to submit to a very cool project here in Indiana. It’s called the Project 411 and I love the concept. Check it out here if you want to learn more.
And now, for your reading enjoyment, here’s another cut up I found on the corner of a newspaper clipping. Stay Focused and Write On!
Lack of finesse can be very bothersome at times
And many fail solely because this situation is annoying.
However, they are sure to succeed,
with meticulous manipulation of words.
