Alright, I have some friends of mine who blog that have “Friday fun post” or “Thursday’s question” is another good one.  Therefore, I have decided to post some of my poetry on Fridays.  I know, I know, most of you did not know that I was a “poet that didn’t know it.”  HAHA!  Most of these were written while I was attending college when I began reading and enjoying poetry (thank you Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds) and others were written while I was in the Marine Corps and at war.  Now, I realize I am no Robert Frost, but I hope you enjoy SOME of them:


She’s lying there cold

Her hair with no face to tickle

Hitting the snooze

Wondering if I’m alive


I lie here hot

Sandy and dirty

Kicking out of the bag

Wondering if I’m alive
