The Teacher

Footprints in sand on ocean beach

I heard His words echo “Follow,

Follow Me” and my heart told me go,

Go, leave the chaos, Follow Him,

Him, who knows all there is to know.

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27



A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.

    1. I tend to just write whatever comes without considering any particular form of poetry I may or maynot be writing in. Years ago the only social network I was on was the Ryze Network, but they kind of petered out though they still exist. I was in a writers’ group and one member was a poet and he used to teach us different forms of poetry and had little contests. I think I won one or two, but I’m not sure where those poems might be now. I can’t remember my password to Ryze and I can’t find anywhere to contact them. The leader of that group can still get in, so it’s just that I need the password.

      1. Most of mine aren’t free verse either. They do have form, like 4-line rhyming verses for example, but I have no idea what those forms might be called. I just don’t set out to adhere to a particular form. I have written a diamante on purpose.

      2. Wish I knew where to find mine. I do have a file drawer in my desk with a lot of writing and printed copies of my books, so maybe I’ll take time later to see if I can find some of those old poems.
