Bloggers PhotoBorn in New Jersey, I now live in Florida.  I was a journalist for many years and joined Poetry Soup to share poems and make new friends.  

My poetry is very direct and to the point, even if I am sometimes a bit long winded.  I am struggling now to master the shorter verse forms.  Most of my poems tell stories, all are inspired by deep feelings on a very wide range of topics. 

I have written four novels, so writing a narrative verse is a nice change for me.  I love hearing from other writers and always try to respond when someone makes a comment.  I enjoy reading others' works as much as I enjoy writing my own.

Fishing, furry creatures and football are among my greatest loves.  I have no tolerance for bigotry and hatred.  "Judge not lest ye be judged" is my favorite quote.

I have few fears, but sharks and alligators are among them.  I also fear for the future of our world.
