Poems by P Janean Knowles
Silently I go unto the night,
My dreams take me into the light.
God is beside me through my trials and joys,
He gently guides me with grace and poise.
As I drift dreamingly up above,
I am constantly reminded of his love.
Now looking down on my body below,
I thank him for all his blessings bestowed.
Biographical sketch: I am a 48 year old housewife now that
I am retired from Southwestern Bell Telephone Company of 30 years. I
was a computer aided drafting clerk for the last 5 years. I am married
to my husband, Frank, for 28 years now. We have a 24 year old daughter
which has been married now for 3 years. We have 2 dogs and 1 cat, which
we got as the result of our daughter leaving the nest. We enjoy Karate,
golf, bowling and taking vacations. My hobbies are collections of plates,
stamps, coins, thimbles, eggs, and elephants. I play several musical
instruments and was a 1st chair baritone player in high school. I also
paint and write poetry and short stories. I cut hair and plan to go
to barber school to get my license to get a job. I work with garden
and household plants.
P Janean Knowles recommends:
Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
Reason: One can read it once and get depth and insight to
their life. Then one can reread it at various times in ones life and
get more insight. It is a wonderful book to have around and read over
and over again.
Recommendations for writers:
I think that the use of imagery is important in writing. The work
should relate feelings, or share an experience which you have had. The
work should touch someone else's heart or stimulate their mind to thinking.
