Waxing Poetic

I’ve been on a poetic roll these last few days. If you’d like to experience my poetry, please check out my blog devoted to it at http://agratefulmanspoetry.com.

A Grateful Man’s Poetry

The titles of some of my recent creations include:

“A Million Miles From Anywhere” (Genesis: The phrase “A million miles from anywhere” popped into my head this morning. I liked the sound and imagery of it and this poem quickly wrote itself. I’m blessed that it let me go along for the ride and that what it depicts is far from my reality.)


“Role of a Lifetime”


With Love,



About russtowne

I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

    Dear Russ,
    I read all the poems by you;
    cried a little, sighed a little, but was ultimately touched, heart and mind by you.
    Love it

      Your comment took my breath away, Heatherlee. I read it repeatedly, savoring your message. Thank you for such a wonderful gift. I’m glad my poetry touched you and evoked such feelings.
