    I can write. That doesn’t mean I’m a poet. Writing is the ability to express your thoughts and rationality into words. Poetry is more the ability to not just express, but actually transmit your feelings and spirituality to others. I’m no poet, but so what, I’m going to wax poetic… about big bore handguns.

    Have I told you lately
    How you bruise my palm greatly
    How heavy you weigh
    At the range when you bray
    So very loud to the ears
    Turning the heads of my peers
    You are massive by sight
    And I thrill at your might
    Flame spitting down range
    Upsetting my aim
    Not just one in a collection
    You are my go-to protection
    A-hunting we go
    For buck, bull, or doe
    In the darkest night
    When I walk blindly, afright
    Stumbling across limbs, mud, and stone
    In the wilderness alone
    At 3AM in the woods
    Rain hammering my hood
    Surrounded by wolves and bears
    Cougars and cares
    Even if I’m caught unawares
    With you I fear not
    You are my constant mascot
    Nature’s a daunting system
    But I will never be victim
    With you at my side
    To protect my hide
    You’re quite a hand gun
    Big, heavy, yet fun
    Never will we part
    You’re a part of my heart
    Best buddies are we

    You’re a poet
    But don’t know it,
    But your feet show it....

    Once you've fired a .50BMG Rifle while standing unsupported.
    Anything under .50cal dia is a small bore.:D

    You know, Kellen, I can't speak for anybody else, but there's a very good chance this will ring true:

    Thank you for the time and effort you've put into many recent posts. I've done a fair bit of writing and few people understand the investment it takes to do what you've done.

    The recent posts (including the prose) are very much appreciated. Kudos to you, my friend, and many thanks for sharing your gift with us.
