I have always enjoyed writing about relationships, romance, and love. It is a marvelous achievement when couples face all the challenges the world throws at them while continuing strong in their love and commitment. Many of the poems I have penned are derived from personal experience, but not all are autobiographical.

Though I occasionally write in free verse, the form does not appeal to me as much as the rhythmic flow of meter and rhyme found in structured, formal poetry. I prefer simplicity of words in my poems, but equally enjoy poetry where more elegant words and expressions are skillfully used.

Greetings everyone!

For some time I have desired to see my poems published in book form, yet work and hesitation had intervened. But, finally, I have managed to do it. My new book, Lyrics of The Heart, is now published and listed at Amazon as paperback and Kindle. Not the greatest, but at least it is mine; I'm very pleased to see some of my poetry published.

Many of you here have been generous and encouraging with your comments on poems I have posted. Too, most helpful has been contests that have been hosted, and I thank you! They have served as an impetus to improve and continue to better my writing. Many thanks to all again!
