”Well, what is this site all about,” I can hear you ask? “Poems and ponderings? Why in the world would I want read mushy poetry?”
Okay, now I’m gonna tell YOU something! If you think you’re about to read “mushy” poetry, well you are 98.6% wrong.. Sure you will find some touching and loving words here, but hey, that is part of life and part of being a human being, it’s an emotion…And emotions run the gamut, and so does my poetry, and if you take the time to visit on a regular a basis, you will find that what I write here is more of a story, (though usually in rhyming form) than the poetry that you may be used to reading. You will find poems about love sure, but you will find some about hate, veterans and war, life in general, suicide,(obviously not my own) and murder, nature and time, working, along with stories of heroes and heels. Oh and did I mention humor, you will find quite a bit of that in my writings, if you visit regularly… And the list goes on and on. There are so many categories that I cannot mention them all in this introduction.
I do hope though, that I have piqued your curiosity enough, for you to take a look at what I have in store for you when you stop to visit here, @poemsandponderings.wordpress.com. I am looking forward to hearing from you as well, that is what the comment section is for, please do not hesitate to use it, that is how we bloggers gauge our success on what we are doing, and decide if it is worth the effort, and believe me it does take an effort to put your thoughts into words and then to share them with amazingly wonderful people like yourself, (a little rump swabbing goes a long way) who are of immense intellect and refinement.
Thank you so much for coming this far, I hope you will enjoy the journey!
