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.

After much thought and input from you Soupers, I have decided to skip the letter "Q" and move on to the letter "R", in the next Pleaides contest. However, if you wish to attempt a "Q" pleiades on your own I would love to read it!

Thank you!  Kim M

Hi Kim, I actually did a Q poem for the fun of it, it's called 'Qualifers' if you'd like to check it out ~ these contests have been a lot of fun, will try to do one for 'R' now ~

Hi Kim, thank you for another contest to inspire, I was not that crazy about the letter Q, but I may attempt one just for the challenge of making one flow, love _Constance

Decision made. Good. I will enter with the "R" but was kind of partial to the "Q." Oh, well.

Hi Kim, I’m enjoying your Pleiades contest. R is more doable. Thanks for letting us know:-) Alexis
