I am a happily married 55 year old man with three sons and a great wife living on a farm in Ohio. I've been writing poetry since I was a kid and just recently turned on to this website. I love rhyming poetry but appreciate meaningful free verse. I also like to write short stories from my past, my heart and my adventures. I'm not an expert, not technically competent, hell, I don't even care about spelling and punctuation, I just know what I like and know how to say it. I just read for the joy of it.
