I have written a large number of poems about animals, cats, dogs, friends, love, life and nature. I became an artist when I was fifty years old and I painted about 450 paintings. I felt each painting had a story to tell, so I started to write poetry about the paintings. I now often write a poem first and then do a painting or graphic to illustrate the poetry. I have a large collection of poetry and I hope you enjoy reading my poems.

Touched by Beauty
We all want to be touched
by wonderful music, beautiful art, love of our fellow man.
To be moved, drawn, taken to places unknown.
To feel an overwhelming chill from a beautiful orchestral phrase,
to be filled with warmth and joy from the color of a canvas,
to feel the wonder from touching the creativity of mankind.
How music, art and poetry cause such emotion is unknown,
but we all know when we are there –
what a cold world it would be without
the beauty of music, art and poetry.
