MIND OF A POET
James Joseph Snyder is a retired engineer living in Minnesota. He has been writing poetry from a young age, published at age six in a book of children’s poems, but only sporadically, until the last seven years when he has put a focused effort into developing his writing. James has had poems published in online journals Lucky Jefferson, Ariel Chart and Academy of the Heart and Mind. He has a love of words, both sound and meaning, from a young age, starting with Dr. Seuss. He hopes to continue writing poetry, for his own pleasure, and to bring some meaning and joy to others.
