Born in Amsterdam Netherlands and migrated to Australia as a kid in 1956.
Due to censorship problems I have created a blog spot at.
I had an ordinary education but I had a talkative mind. In my early fifties I started to learn about computers and word processing and that opened a whole new world for me.

A Letter To The Poet
Dear poet as a member of Poem Hunter I’ve really scrutinized the ins and out, the pros and cons of the web site. I started to down load my poetry on Poem Hunter since September 2009. One advantage of this site it records the “hits”
Moving house is such the pits; all the old certainties that were there forever all to be packed up in boxes.Views out of most windows I look through, especially since the next door neighbour’s house was burnt to the ground.
A Christian's Poem
In the Christian faith in eternity one gets to keep oneself. For where anyone goes he is always going to be himself. It is a powerful question to ask about oneself who he is, does he mind. Self judgment is there, there's the pointing of the finger and fault to find.
Cotton wool clouds continents shifting forces tearing them apart.©
The Dance Of Life
An exuberance of life is to dance once more the dance of life With your partner by your side. To once again see the sunrise and hear the morning's outside chorus. Feel the days vibrancy, the clattering of life during the morning's rise.
For untold millions of years plants of the world have been making oxygen so that all life can live on planet Earth. Oxygen does not come from evaporation of oceans nor from water vapour; oxygen only come
Suicide Of My Father
I received a phone call during February 1988 twenty one years ago. It was Hank a close family friend of the Behr family, he asked me to come to the family home right away. At that time my only transport was a bicycle so
The High Chair
In the morning after breakfast, I mount my high chair, it is as high as the furthest adjustments will allow.
All What Seems To Be Is Not What It All ...
When anybody wanders into a Centrelink office they would be struck by its beauty and its officialdom. At the enquiries counter there were only a couple of people in the queue waiting to be served. The dole queue does not seem to be too long. Giving the
In House Out House Inside Outside
During Australia's history especially since the 1950's many immigrants came from all over the world to settle in the land down under. The immigrants wanted to get away from the memories of Nazism,
Centrelink And The Dole
In Australia’s twenty first century today, it is far removed from old Henry Lawson’s time of the last century. Lawson’s day of horses, sheep and cattle stations, at the back of Bourke, seems hardly applicable in this century. The old bush telegraph, seems now an old cliché, hardly ever used, nothing more than a cenotaph.The camaraderie and mateship, known in Lawson’s day, are now in amongst the dole queues of Centrelink offices, strewn across the country side.The government has redesigned and reconfigured the dole office, with the latest Office decor, into a mixture, of a luxury hotel lobby and a Star Trek Ship. The unemployed, enter a whirring sounding office, for their welfare trip. The humming, whirring sounds, comes from all the computers onboard.
A few years back I started to learn about computers and word processing which opened up a whole new world for me.The computer allowed me to rearrange sentences and words where ever I liked and learned how to write my own poetry book.
Love Is Blind
They say love is blind. But I don’t think so to be kind. I think love is more an understanding of the beloved faults and not grandstanding.
At night it becomes more obvious, someone then can see the ant trails. One trail starts on the M5, a ribbon of steel of ants, trucks nose to tail. Bedecked with Christmas lights, eighteen wheelers carrying shipping containers.

A Letter To The Poet
Dear poet as a member of Poem Hunter I’ve really scrutinized
the ins and out, the pros and cons of the web site.
I started to down load my poetry on Poem Hunter since
September 2009. One advantage of this site it records the “hits”
of the people reading the poet’s poetry.
I think Poem Hunter is the only one that has this application.
There are other poetry sites on the internet e.g. Privacy At
Poetry Poem, Privacy At Poetry Vista. These sites are also for
free to all the world’s poets. In all these sites the poet has to be
highly computer literate ...
