Bloggers PhotoI have been writing books and poetry since the mid-eighties. I have taken a horde of writing courses which have increased my understanding of creative expression. I love poetry in that it frees me to fully express myself. I hope you will enjoy my contributions to PoetrySoup. My book of Christian Poetry was published on 11/13/22 by Amazon. Yay!

Hello Anaya! The cover is a Amazon KDP template. I always enjoy reading, and studying the Bible. I found it easy to write about the Lord. In no time at all I had written enough poems to make a book. Approximately 85 poems are in this book. The goodness of God and His love for us is noted within the pages of this book. Good hearing from you Anaya. Take Care!
