JDarrell Kirkley Biography

I have been a Producer/Director of Corporate films
and videos for the past 35 years in Dallas, Texas. I
have been married to my wife, Judy, for 37 years.
Poetry has been something that I have played with
over the years and have not made it a priority until
August 2004. The loss of my daughter 'Marisa' has
made me really think about my poetic feelings, and
since her loss, I have written some 50 poems, of
which 12 of them are about her. I find writing poems
are a good release of my inter feelings. I don't know if any of them will ever be recognized as such, but
they comfort me with deep meaning. And that is what
counts for me.
