“My poetry touches on aspects of my life: the farming/ranching life and people from where I originated; from literature and philosophy; from personal experiences; and from my own spiritual life. I love the natural world created by Christ Himself, and I process most poems within that natural context. I think free verse combined with some intentional respect for diction, meter, and serendipitous rhyme are where I tend to center my writing. Almost always, my poems have layers of meaning, at least to me.”
