Poetry writing experience
I've been writing for about 15 years as the direct result of a spiritual experience. I
became interested in formal poetry after joining a website about 10 years ago.
On that site, there was a
teacher of poetry who did
challenges of every form or
just about every form there is. That is where I learned
formal verse, and have, I
believe, written in every
form there is.

State or country in which the poet resides

Testimony of saving faith for Christians only
The first spiritual experience I had is what drew me to Christ. I believed in God, but did not have a personal relationship with Christ. About 5 years ago, I was interviewed for a magazine article about the poetry. It was then I realized that more important than the poetry, was to express my need and want to draw others to Christ. That was first and foremost, and the poetry was second. It was then I realized how, step by step, I had become a vessel for the Lord, after accepting Christ as my Lord and Savior. To Him, all the credit is due, and He has blessed me immensely.

About the Poet
Poet and follower of Christ as a direct result of several spiritual experiences in my life.

The Good Shepherd watches over His flock.
He won’t ever lose one of His sheep.
He enfolds us within His loving arms.
We are all safe within His keep.

When the wolf is crouching just over the hill,
When the Deceiver lurks outside our door,
We can call upon the Shepherd’s strength
To stand against temptation once more.

The Shepherd won’t let us out of His sight.
He watches over us in the night and the day.
When Satan is near, He is aware of our plight.
With His guidance, we will not go astray.
