INFORMATION
Larry5000 is a great person to know. he tries and write poetry with feeling and thoughtfulness. He sincerely hopes that his words will touch someone in whatever way that may be.

He started writing poetry when he was in the third grade and has been writing off and on ever since. Unfortunately most of his poetry from that long ago got filed in the waste paper basket and was gone for good.

He loves to write romantic poetry about husbands/wives and some boyfriend/girlfriend, but tries very carefully not to cross the line making it sexual in nature.
His other love is of course Christian Poetry. As a born again Christain he feels it is important for people to understand what God is all about.
It is hard in this day and age to live for the Lord and take a strong stand for Him.

He goes on to say, besides the great commission in Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus also has this to say
"Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven." We should not be ashamed to talk about Lord.

Besides Romantic and Christian poetry he has done greeting card style poems as in birthdays and anniversaries, poems about friendship and general poetry as well.
Ninety-nine percent of his poetry is rhymning, but he hopes to do some free verse and maybe other styles as well. He has done a couple of contests so far while on fanstory but has not won as of yet.

Larry is married to a wonderful woman named Amy and works in the security business. He served over 8 years in the U.S. Navy.
He attends Berea Missionary Baptist Church, where he writes the church bulletin and serves as the song leader as well.

Larry loves scifi related shows, especially Star Trek and is Captain of a cyber internet ship chapter in the IFT fan organization.

Larry5000: For those interested my book on romantic poetry is ready to go. You can find it here. https://www.amazon.com/Romantic-Moments-Poetry-Couples-Love/dp/1733321209/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Larry+Roop&qid=1564513063&s=books&sr=1-1

Larry5000: Just a small update I am working on my new website for my poetry. Some of my pages are done, but the biggest is yet to come, would like to get it to a point where at least 3/4 of it is done before I show it off to all. I might need some people to read a couple of things and tell me what they think. If you would be interested in doing that let me know and I will get a hold of you on that.

Larry5000: Hey guys and girls. I think I got my poetry website up enough to show it off a little. I still have many poems to put up and link up to titles that are already there, mostly in my Romantic poetry. It is always going to be a work in progress I guess.

Always willing to hear what people think, so let me know if you care too. If you have any comments or suggestions I am here to listen. Never hurts to suggest something, you never know, I might just use that suggestion at some point.
Also on the first page I have a midi that will start to play after a moment or two, so you may want to turn down your speakers, just a little bit anyway. Do not want to blast you out of your seat. Take Care.

Larry5000: I know there are many Christians on fan story as I get some very good reviews and comments from certain people on my Christian/Spiritual poetry. I would ask from each of you that believe in the power of prayer to pray for me in the next few weeks as there may be some changes in my personal life.

I believe rather these changes totally happen or just a portion of them that things will be for the better. But whatever happens as I have wrote in my poems God is in control and things will turn out the way He wants them too, and for that I am eternally grateful. Thanks to each and every one of you up here.

    Carolyn 12: Hello Larry-just came actoss your poem Sometimes we lose, you could feel your heart in this. I hope from your post above that things have turned out ok for you. Regardless prayers for your well being..

Larry5000: Finally thought I would get around to sharing a little bit of what I have going.
I have a poetry web site I am working on but it is still to early to reveal that just yet much more work has to be done.

I also have a Zazzle store for my "Imagine Poetry" line of products and greeting cards.
I want to do alot more cards and I am looking for more good artwork and things for my cards. The images sizes need to be pretty large, very high quality JPG or PNG even though the cards are just 5 X 7. And of course if I do a poster or something images need to be even larger, usually 1000 or 2000 X whatever. Artists probably know what I mean even more then I do. Anybody have any romantic artwork, couples etc. please let me know.
I wish there had been bigger cards sizes but such is not the case.

Check out my store at http://www.zazzle.com/larry5000

    Larry5000: As mentioned up above I am always looking for more great art, especially in Romance and Christian art. The Lord gave me a gift of writing poetry, but darn it I did not get a gift of drawing, well unless you count stick figures as drawing. lol
    Just let me know and we will see what we can work out if you have what I need.

    Fanstory has been a blessing through out the year 2010 and I hope 2011 will prove to do the same.

    Matoshka: Hi Larry, stopped by and checked out your profile. I will check out your site. Angelheart just did some art for a poem I wrote called, "Come Holy Spirit." I don't know but maybe she can help its just a suggestion. Love your portfolio. Blessing my friend and God Bless.
    January 10, 2011 at 4:23AM
    Larry5000: To all my fans here on fanstory, I am still around, I just have been doing other things and I need to pay for my full membership and get started writing again. I apologize for not being here more. I will try and get back up here very soon. I am working on my new website for poetry, similar to the old one for those that have been there, but with a few new features like a guest book and maybe a blog and so on. Thanks for not forgetting about me.
