Why I Started writing
As a child I was unable to vocalize my thoughts and feelings so I learned to write them out. Writing how I felt about an issue soon turned into writing poems about how I was feeling, a personal or spiritual insight or just some silly lines to make someone smile or even laugh a little. The theme of my poetry in general is: Poetry to Lighten a Troubled Heart. Laugh a Little, Cry a Little, Know You’re Not Alone. All my poetry falls into one of those four categories. When I have completed the pages for this site, there will be poems from each category.
More pages in each category
I will be adding pages over time. I will add a third or fourth or however many pages from each category until I run out of poems. As I add a page, I will add a link to that page. Come back often to see how much progress I’ve made.
To navigate through the poetry pages, use the links above the image on each page.
I am going to convert all my poetry books to digital format. I am still considering how to do this so it may take a while to get them online as a download to purchase and receive immediately. My magnets and bookmarks will be available and mailed via the postal service.

I have found a program that will allow me to create my books in pdf format. However, it is a complicated process to learn. Each time I use it, I learn more. Eventually, I will be able to list my books in downloadable digital files.

I have created more pages, two additional pages for each category. Most of them are finished. The rest need added poems so each page as the standard four poems.
I am still working on learning to convert my books to pdf format so they can be downloaded. With few exceptions, I will not be selling any of my books. They will be free to download. I can hear my late husband fussing about my work is worth payment. He never did understand that my poetry is a ministry not a profit making enterprise. Donations will be accepted and I will add a button for donations once I have uploaded completed pdf books.
