Author has written 72 stories for Love, Haiku, Friendship, Life, Nature, School, War, and General.

it's been far too long.

i'll be going through a major overhaul of the poems currently uploaded, as i hope to use some in applications for the coming year.

Bring me only beautiful useless things.
Only old home things touched at sunset in the quiet...
And at the window one day in summer
Yellow of the new crock of butter
Stood against the red of climbing roses...
And the world was all playthings.

from "Murmurings in a Field Hospital" by Carl Sandburg
