There’s a thin black road I have traveled many times.
It leads to peace
In so many ways.
It’s kind of hard to describe
For the road’s oft unclear.
It unfolds to me
Like a lovely gift
One word at a time.
Then, music fills in the gaps,
Making worries fade away,
As unexplainable peace pours in.
There’s a thin black road
It leads me to peace.
When good or ill tidings come
To threaten my equilibrium,
I will travel that road
And return to peaceful calm.
Interview with the Author:
Q: What exactly is Thin Black Road?
A: This is a collection of very short Christian inspirational poems. I wrote it mainly while in college while I was driving back and forth to home on weekends. They started out as songs.
Q: Why should a reader check out this book?
A: There are a lot of simple truths in here. Whether you’re in need of a little encouragement or just want a thought of the day, this is probably a good fit for you. If poetry’s not really your thing, this book might still work for you. I have very little patience for long poetry, so all you’re going to get in here are short and to-the-point sorts.
Q: I heard a rumor you give away paperback copies? (What if I can’t afford this book?)
A: True. Get in touch with me. My email’s not hard to find if you do a bit of digging. You can also do this through my website. I try to get paperback copies of this book into as many hands as possible through Createspace. Church or individual, doesn’t matter to me. If you’ve a will to read it, I will try to accommodate. Please note, this is subject to availability and feasibility.
Q: Do you write other stuff?
A: Sure. I write science fiction, mystery, and fantasy stories as well.
Hi. I'm a chemistry teacher and a multi-genre writer. Whether fantasy, science fiction, or mystery, I enjoy the thrill of exploring characters and how they interact with the world around them. I also love meeting people and chatting with them via email. Tea and Legos are other passions of mine.
