About meI grew up in the copper mines of Arizona and graduated from Arizona State University at Tempe, Arizona. My degree is Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. My major job was director of world marketing for the Quartz Watch Program for Motorola. I left the engineering field and went into the financial newsletter business. Due to the return of polio in the form of postpolio syndrome, I had to accept disability and retire. I did not have any experience writing poetry. Then one night our next-door neighbor’s son was killed in an accident. I lay in bed that night, and for the first time in my life, a poem came to me. I got up and went to my computer and, in twenty minutes, wrote “He’s My Son Too.” With this, I started to write for several years until I ran out of any new ideas. So I just stopped, and after several years, I was encouraged to publish some of the 1,600 poems that I have written. I have gone through many different problems that I have put into the poems I have written. I hope that these poems are enjoyed each of you, some basics in life that I had never recognized myself.

About my libraryThere are so many definitions of poetry as there are poets. It means a lot of things to a lot of people. It typically evokes in the reader an intense emotion: joy, sorrow, anger, catharsis, love... Alternatively, it has the ability to surprise the reader with an experience -- revelation, insight, further understanding of elemental truth and beauty.

In One Man’s Life a and Thoughts, author Charles T. Johnson sums up everything in a collection of passionately written poems that genuinely comes from his heart.
