About Rick W. Cotton

I am a middle manager in Corporate America....when I am not staring out the window at the color of the leaves, or the clouds, or the blue of the sky. I am a hopeless romantic, love old movies and music, and special times. Cannot abide rap, liver and onions, reality TV, and shopping malls. I have a lovely wife, a fat cat, and a taste for BBQ.

    To get us all to read their signs
    With people-shaped foamboard designs!

    And feel like microwaved-reheated death

    Springtime, And The Beauty Of Nature

    in Spring Poems

    I walked by the tree at the top of the hill
    And stood to feel the wind go by
    On its journey too far and distant lands
    Through leaves it came with gentle sigh

    And do with your life what your parents both did
    To do basic math and finally see

    A Beautiful Blanket Of Snow

    A stranger came here late last night
    Silent puffs of falling white
    Frigid, falling, drifting down
    Unusual this far down in a southern town
