Escape for a few moments into my poetic world of stories and riddles, if you dare! Welcome to The Ins and Outs of the South, a continuous collection of poems I’m writing.

I owe my love for poetry to my beloved mama, whose passion for the poetic language touched my soul at an early age.  I can recall sitting anxiously upon her soft lap as she read those magical words, and I begged her to teach them to me.  As the years slipped by, I began writing my own words, although I wrote solely for pleasure.  I never intended material gain or fame, but if I could regale others for only a moment with my poetic utterances, a smile would appear upon my heart.

I hesitate to claim to be a poet.  Let’s just say that I enjoy tinkering around with words.  For those of you who fancy a good laugh, here’s your chance, one way or the other!  LOL!  Hopefully, you will leave this site with a smile on your face because you were joyfully entertained.  Happy reading, folks, and thanks for dropping by!
