Before the Cloud of Throne, Cloud of Knoledge, Gift of God.

Let us Give, Let me Give.

I will make my attempt, freely

Given unto my words, let us know,

Let me know, no soul too dirty

In the great undoing, oh the

Throne of God, Jesus be kind, I beg

How could you love me, I know

You are marvelous, you accept me,

As I accept something of this Sky

Unburdened with a rain of love.


I have been told that my Lifelong gift,

By Tom Schulte, this Life Long lingering

In cases of unknowing, these are not good,

Enough for a Zendo, that others cannot

Understand my sweet gifts of praise, oh Lord,

Where is it that a life of 66 years being the poet

Went wrong in praise of Thee, How did I go wrong?DSCN0073.jpg

I was a University and community college instructor. I am an ordinary man writing for artistic reasons, and simple taste-- blogs are an answer to high priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to print his 1000 paper books himself because in 1855 poetry did not sell. It does not sell now unless you have a Pulitzer Prize, and even then, the poet usually makes a living in other ways than poetry. In all ages there have been writers writing out of their own reasons. I am an older man with fewer computer skills than my daughter. Blogs let me reach an audience missed by books, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience. My two self-published books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude, Charles E Taylor, MFA, and a third coming out sometime next year, through The Book Patch: For Patty Brown... satisfy needs to hold books, and, yet, still read as electronic books which are easier to produce than paper books. The blog allowed me to write a compendium of my writing. I can combine composition with production. Wordpress provides word processing with production. When the writer finishes writing they press publish and then a finished piece. I’m happy to present to you a slice of my personal writing. Do enjoy what you read!
