Do you like Red Dirt Poetry? Do you love to walk a red dirt road and feel a fence post. If you do, you have come to the right place.

I am a Caterpillar Engineer by training, but my primary love is photography.  I spend many hours traveling down the backroads in my home state of Oklahoma, looking for that special sunset, old barn,  or a windmill.  Many of my photographs are available for viewing on various internet sites. In general my poems are short and to the point.  Most were written to illustrate my photography.

I have over 2000 web pages, all of which include poetry from various poets who have writen poems to illustrate my photos. My Home Page may be found at ... more »

    John is one of the best Red Dirt men I know.
    He takes you on Red Dirt trips with his wonderful
    poetry and you can travel along with him as he
    takes you all over the world in his web pages.

    Hello John, I reside in Mustang, OK. so we are close neighbors. I too design and build high pressure equipment as well as other specialized equipment in a large manufacturing plant where I have been employed for almost 40 years. Spring is my favorite season and I see even the storm clouds in awesome beauty though they sometimes scare the heck out of me! I enjoy your work very much and look forward to reading more as time permits. George.

Best Poem of John McCornack

One More Mile

Give me the strength to travel one more mile
To out in the country where people still farm
To where there is still a sense of community
With wheat fields, horses, plus many a barn

Out where the cows and horses still run free
Where natural beauty provides a dreamland
Here there are red sunsets and simple trees
Just give me one more mile in this great land

Read the full of One More Mile
