My Poetry

I have been writing poetry for many years, just in the last few getting any of it published. I have just recently gotten science fiction poems published in the Christian science fiction e-zines Mindflights. and in Digital Dragon magazine. Go read and enjoy!

Be aware that most of my poetry isn't "pretty" poems filled with puffery. I don't want to give away my best stuff for free, but the poem below is something I submitted to some web thing or another so it's already been out there on the internet.

You can also visit our congregation web site, where I do a short poem in the "Food for Thought" section every month.

Recycled

There's a dumpster in the driveway

For all the valuable stuff

We saved to remind us

Of things we remember anyway

Offered from the soul of the wounded


Bright diamond shards cut deeply

Blood courses through rusted channels

Draining slowly leaves only wooden framework

Bleached clean shingles ready for love again
