About Me


This blog is for my poems which are influenced by Shel Silverstein.  When I was young I used to lay on my bed and read his poem books all afternoon and I still have some of them memorized (“I cannot go to school today said little Peggy Ann McKay…”)!  After studying music in college and moving to the West coast, where I knew very few people, I got an idea that I would write poems in his style about music and instruments.  Well…after writing a few in that direction I kind of hit a wall with those limitations so I gave up on that thought and began writing poems about anything.  Some of these are based on real people and/or events (The Bird, Ice, etc) and some are just completely made up.  In the end I hope they are enjoyable and make people smile.
