Thoughts about poetry
writing what most people would call poetry when I was in high school.
Most of it took the form of song lyrics for my first band. However,
a lot of the time there was no music and I just put down what was
swimming around in my head.
little of that work survives to this day. The samples on this site
are more recent.
thing I've noticed about myself and my ability to write verse is
that there has to be some struggle going on inside me. If I'm more
or less content, my writing endeavors do not come out as verse but
take the shape of stories and novels.
now, newly married and with our first child, I'm failrly content.
Of course, there's always the struggle with humanity and where we
stand with God and that's where most of my poetic thoughts lie these
in between all of my other creative endeavors, Lori and I hope to
write some original worship songs to go along with the standards
we do when we lead worship.
some of that will show up here one day.
