Hi, I'm John Watt and I live in California, USA. My biography is perhaps best summarized by three bio poems I created for Poetry Soup contests:




If you'd like to get to know me from my writings, here are 2 or 3 of my favorites in each of the writing categories I most enjoy:

Faith poems:        


Nature poems:


Love poems:    






Writing about writing: 


For Loved Ones:     





Many thanks to all you Soup poets who write with such dazzling talent, inspiring others to do the same, and all you who leave such uplifting comments. Happy writing! ~ John

Let us never forget Connie Marcum-Wong, a true rose in the Poetry Soup garden.

Here is a link to a poem I wrote as a tribute to her:

and here is a link to a touching tribute poem written by Michael Tor:

There are also lovely tributes written by Sandra Haight and Constance La France, which you can find at their blogs or at their home pages. If other poets would like to add their tribute poems to this list, please soupmail me the information. Thank you ~ John
