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!
