Forget politics, write poetry

November 2, 2012
Estherville Daily News

Dear Editor:

My apologies if I may have offended anyone with my recent letters to the editor. Opining on politics is obviously not my forte. As God seemed to speak to me in a dram last night, I'm having a midlife crisis. I was never meant to be a dispenser of political advice. As an Episcopal Priest friend of mine encouraged me once while stomping down her foot-"write poetry!"

I see where ILCC has a continuing Ed2go class entitled Pleasures of Poetry. For a mere $95 it's possible to take online courses for about six weeks. I think my "plan of attack" so far as becoming a published and well-known writer will be to keep repeating the class ad nauseum and submitting my poems to various publications.

Beginning with this poem right here in this my favorite "rag." God bless.

God's In Us?!

I don't see God in you.

Neither do I see you

Like me, I see

A depleted soul

In search

Of a



We fathom

Stars yet

Rarely see

Him about us

The one who

Taught, healed

And died

Who lives ALIVE!?!
