I am proud to announce that several of my original poems,
"A World of Peace",
"Shades of Blue", "Dancing in the Mirror", and "Silent Words of Love"
have appeared or are scheduled to appear in various anthologies,
or books of poetry, by The National Library of Poetry.
In addition, "A World of Peace" and "Silent Words of Love"
were selected from about 30 poems they felt would have a
universal appeal if read aloud, to be included on
The National Library of Poetry's "Sound of Poetry"
audiotapes and CDs, where the poems are read aloud by
I write my poetry from my
heart whenever the muses inspire me, mostly as a hobby
for my own enjoyment.
When my poems are read by others and receive recognition
by a prestigious poetry society, that is icing on the cake
for me. If my poetry can uplift, inspire, educate, or
entertain my readers, then I will have reached my goal
as a writer. I like to think of the medium of
poetry as my canvas, using the art of rhyme as
my palette, to color my words in such a way that
they paint a picture in the imagination of my readers.
Writing poetry is a truly a labor of love me.
