About Kim Merryman
(Show Details...)
Bloggers Photo   Hi! My name is Kim Merryman. I was born April 27, 1959 in Louisville, KY but grew up in Rancho Cordova, CA.  My husband's name is Rob. We were married on May 30, 1981 and we have two grown sons named Daniel and Matthew, and a black cat named Max.

    I currently live in Niceville, FL located in the Florida Panhandle, near Eglin AFB. With my husband being in the Air Force we have moved around a little. We have lived in California, Florida, Texas, Okinawa and North Carolina.

    I am a Christian and many of my poems reflect that.  I've only been writing poetry for 7 years. Most of my inspiration comes while I'm reading my Bible.

     My other interests include reading, crocheting, counted-cross stitch, and playing Scrabble.

     I'm so glad I found Poetry Soup. Since becoming a member I have learned so many new forms. The contests have stretched my creativity and the positive comments are so encouraging.  Even though I've never met you, I feel like I know you. Looking forward to a long, happy relationship with all of you.

I want to congratulate all the winners in my contest  I loved reading about your hometown or country  Ya'll did great!

Normally I would congratulate you each individually but I'm in a bit of a time crunch  I leave Weds to go to Calif (Citrus Heights-Sacramento area) for a month to visit my family and I've got a million things to do before I go  Because of this trip I'll be scarce around here but I'll check in as much as possible

Once again, a BIG Congratulations to my winners and my thanks to you for supporting my contest  Go on everyone and check out the winner's list

See ya later!

Love, Kim
