Greetings my friends. I am looking forward to working together with you. I am Prof. Amb. Dr. Joseph. S. Spence Sr., a prolific, worldwide acclaimed award-winning, best-selling poet. I follow my faith and am a World Peace Ambassador of Human Rights, Humanity, and International Diplomacy. My mother taught me how to read, write, interpret, and recite poems in high school, and have uplifted worldwide humanity with inspiration since. Served in poetic leadership positions, conducted seminars, recitals, and assisted poets worldwide to publish the golden words from their crystal inked musing pens. I authored ten uplifting poetry books and numerous peer-reviewed articles. My recent book, “Sincerely Speaking Spiritually,” uplifts and inspires souls to press on and achieve the highest heavenly prize for which ordained. This is the link to my book:

I studied English literature, creative writing, African Diaspora, Japanese linguistics, and poetry at the University of Maryland Global Campus, Howard University, and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. During my military service as a decorated U. S. Army officer, I wrote poems for my comrades in arms who named me “Apollo,” Greek god of poetry. Received worldwide awards for my uplifting poems, short stories, and articles. Inducted into various International Scholastic Honor Societies. Governor William Clinton appointed me Goodwill Ambassador for Arkansas, USA.
I look forward to us working together. My residence? Wisconsin!

The following alliterated acrostic poem, sonnet format gives my poetic identity:

Joseph Spence, Sr: Acrostic, Alliteration, Sonnet Poem!

Jumping Jupiter, a jubilant sundae lover, and just a jewel.
Oppressed liberator, optimistically captivating; oratorical.
Saintly passionate, succulent salmon sampler; sweetheart.
Exquisitely enchanting, enchantingly amatorious; éclat.
Playful, painstakingly passionate, pajama wearer, patient.
Handsomely helpful handyman, harmonizer of happiness.

So sensationally super; Sagittarius son of John Spence.
Pleasantly personable, and matriarch Maud Spence’s son.
Enabling, exquisite, eloquent, evolving, and enterprising.
Naturally nice, no-nonsense, and a nutritional nobleman.
Carrot consumer, constant comrade, and cold-war veteran.
Heavenly enlightened, and just an elegant eggnog taster.

Sweet as syrup, shining armor off the shelf; savoir-faire.
Red-blooded poetry connoisseur and radioactively lovable!
