I started writing poetry my freshman year in high school at the age of Thirteen. I worked for Lockheed Martin (Univac, Sperry Univac, Sperry Rand, Unisys, Loral, Paramax, Lockheed Martin) in Eagan Minnesota, Pueblo Colorado, and Great Neck New York for 44 years. I've also been researching my Family's tree. So, I plan this site to be a repository for my Poems, memoirs, and family stories. Of course I reserve all copyright restrictions for anything held herein.

Welcome

Welcome!
If you haven’t been into this site before, I recommend you start with Poetry. My section on 9/11 is my favorite. The posting about my experience that day is dear to me. It also inspired me to write my best And longest poem to date. I have over 1,000 poems posted, in many formats.
My Alphabet Poems were fun word exercises for me.
Or, you may enjoy my Animated Stills and Picture Poems series that are photographs that inspired a Poem.
Of course, I’m proud of my early works too.

Pictures are also interesting.

Just tap the words above my name.

New additions

I posted several of my early Poetic works. I went to a Catholic high school that was segregated to boys only, so these reflect a religious bendt. I went to Hill High School (later Hill-Murray) fron 1961 to 1965.

As the second surviving son, I was expected to become a Priest. I was struggling with this during this period as reflected in the works “A Priest” and “Identity”
