Poems from Terrance Longtin

I'm 62 years old, I am married, I am an artist, I do abstract paintings and sell them locally and on Etsy in Terrance Gallery. I have had 23 major surgeries on my legs, recently Nov 9, Jan 11 and the next one in April. So I have a full leg cast from Nov 9 thru June 28 so I wrote a children's book which has been published and released to the public March 13, 2021.

My tattoo says "all seems beautiful to me" and there's a Chinese symbol for beauty at the end. Walt Whitman is known as the father of free verse poetry. I actually wrote a free verse poem about myself, which I really like.

It's pretty surprising and really unique, I'm a super poet now, For me It's a treat.
