More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

I became a Baptist Christian on January 9, 1994; was baptized a week later on the 16th; and, on July 16th of that year, was called to write poetry, after having pursued this vocation, without production, since October 13, 1975.

Those poem titles preceded by + or by /+/,; or those poems beginning, alphabetically, with the letters "T: through "Z" represent my primary poems those most important to my collection of poetry.

My screen name is derived from 2 Peter 1:19 and Revelation 22:16. My haiku name, or haigo, is Kyakuchuu, a Japanese word, meaning "Footnote."

''. .. that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things . . .'' --- The Apostle Saint Paul, Epistle To Titus 2:10

"Writing little spirit pieces, repetition/circulation in theme, word, and image. . . ." Gila Mon, Poet, Payson Arizona. from his blog, Dreaming In Satellite. [In forty-four years of reading poetry, as of 2017, I have never found a better description of poetry and poems.]

". . . while carefully reading the text of the narratives, the writer earnestly endeavored to realize the persons and circumstances presented; to place himself in thought beside Peter, John, and Paul; Stephen and Philip; Cornelius and Lydia; and so to view the wonders which surrounded them. For himself he may truly say that such efforts have always tended, under God's blessing, to guide the eye of faith directly to Him "who is our hope"; and his only desire in offering these pieces to the reader is to aid, in however slight a measure, others also to look thither with increasing clearness and assurance."
---H. C. G. Moule, Preface to Poems on subjects selected from the Acts of the Apostles, vi.

"I venture to suggest that the more orthodox is a writer's theology, the more convincing, as symbols and allegories, his uncanny tales will be. . . . . Because the Christian tradition, with its complex of symbol, allegory, and right reason, genuinely penetrates to spiritual depts. and spiritual heights, the modern supernatural story which isolates itself from this authority drifts aimlessly . . .
