I left my heart in bowling green, kentucky


i have forgotten?

by now?

you borrowed a piece

of my heart —

we were

finishing college

we had one year to go

you left that summer

for a job at a national park

U never returned / / /

i’m here


still waiting

forever waiting

for your return

please return

to Bowling Green

with the piece of my heart




where we left off

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
