Biography of G.R. Gaus

Grew up in St. Louis, then lived on a farm in Western Missouri for 30 years. Married in 1977 we have three boys, my wife and I now live in Colorado where we are experimenting with retirement. Updates


Falling so softly, in such a fine mist,
The air lays still and calm;
Plants open wide, as lightly kissed,
Moisture, applied as a balm.

Calling more steady, puddles form,
The wind; begins to stir;
A far off distant, thunder storm,
Lightning; flashes so pure.

[Hata Bildir]
