Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"James Douglas Owens, Sr. (Jimmy) was raised by a father, James Willard Owens, Sr., who could quote every line of Thanatopsis from memory, and did, along with hundreds of other poems. Jimmy learned early on that poetry was a valuable tool for expressing feelings.

The feelings that Jimmy harbored, as a result of life situations, were many and pervasive.

Busy making a living for himself and his family, the missing factor for him to put those feelings to paper was time. Both fate and circumstances furnished him that time to reflect and to write.

Many of the poems in this book were written in that space of time.

Today, Jimmy is semi-retired living quietly in East Texas. He owns his own big rig and drives short hauls in order to be home at night with his wife."
