Bud Lemire

Hello, I am new here. I live in a small city in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Besides a year and a half married in Washington state (2002-2004) I have lived here all my life. I write poetry, work on genealogy (French-Canadian...Quebec), and have become very spiritual in the new age sense(chakras, etc). My poetry is written from all experiences I have been through in life. People I know...places I've been. I love people and getting acquainted with more, for each of us have a wonderful soul.

My news for December 2016 is my Poetry Blog & Picture Blog and here are the links:

Bud's Poetry -

Welcome to my collection of poetry that I have put together. I grew up here in Escanaba, Michigan, smack dab in the Upper Peninsula, and have lived here most of my life.

I have around 1, 700 poems at my Poetry Blog. If you enjoy poems, and have nothing to do. Go there. They are my views on life, my experiences in life, the loves in my life, and even the darkness. The places I've been, the things I've seen. All put into a rhyming poem. I share them with you, if you dare to go there. And you thought I was only good with a camera. Bud's Photo Blog

Want to look over all my photos I've taken over the last several years?

Then check out my Photo Blog and see the ones I picked to show the wide Web. Just click on any picture to make it bigger. Oh yeah, feel free to leave a comment. ~Bud~
