I have written poetry for fifty years. I wrote my first poem on the bus to Dallas to enlist in the Navy. I try not to write "Woe is me, My baby don't love me any more" poems. I have a diverse range of subject matter in my poetry and I am always seeking something new.
I served in the U.S. Navy on aircraft carriers that flew flight opts into Vietnam and that is my NAVAL experience.
I have two navels which is the result of a colon cancer operation.
