"All There Is"

Most of my previous books of poetry have a section
containing spiritual and inspirational poetry in addition
to sections containing humorous and other secular
poetry. I have often been asked where to find those
spiritual and inspirational poems all in one place. This is
it folks, “All There Is” of my faith based poetry collected
from my previous books and many new lines of verse as
well. Enjoy, and God bless you for asking!

"Idle Thoughts"

The poems in "Idle Thoughts" are presented
with special thanks to the Poem of the Day
Yahoo group where George Smith helps get
our creative juices flowing each April and
November by sharing daily poetry prompts
from Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides blog
     ( .

Without his help, I would write very little and
spend all my time quilting or playing games
on my Kindle. As I have mentioned in other notes,
I am not a driven poet, but a driven quilter and
part time poet! Included here are personal reflections,
thoughts on writing, the world around us, and a giggle or two to make you smile.
