MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR Garry Cox in his own words…

As an educator, poet and runner I am a lifer. I have the blessed opportunity to create new works and compete in my sport (Track & Field) in my upcoming 80th trip around our Sun.

I believe writing is precursor to thought, not the other way around. Poetry is an invitation to advance our thinking and deepen our feelings about the world we live in. It is a sharing of truths, your truth, my truth, the truth of our human experience. A good poem will celebrate these truths with a style and grace that exists in every tongue spoken on our planet.

Excerpt:

I Had a Life (most popular poem)

I had a life, I had a wife, we had each other almost to forever

I think she left me, but I’m not sure now

I may have left her, but I’m not sure how

I do know this much, there was always such love

that in my mind I cannot find a single saying of goodbye
