TERMITE is an original member of a 60's NJ rock group as a first tenor singing doo-wop in 5 part harmony. He still sings whenever he has an opportunity. He is also a ballroom dance competitor and private instructor. His career started as a pilot in the USAF and then progressed to engineering and management. He climbed the corporate ladder to the level of C.E.O. before recently retiring to a six day work week turning around companies in difficulty. He is a father of 4 very talented children and recently became a grandfather for the fourth time.

TERMITE does not indulge himself in the pursuit of rhyming words. His poems always originate from his gut and are always inspired by real life experiences that have left an indelible mark on his soul.

TERMITE's poetry has recently been published in "Sensations Magazine", a three time American Literary Magazine Award winner.

As a reviewer, I'm really bad. I'm not qualified to judge all that I read fairly. Therefore, if I review a poem or story and I really like it, I will give it 5 stars. If I am blown away by it, I'll give six. Don't expect me to pick nits.

TERMITE: aka Joe, is a child of the 50's and a native of Newark, New Jersey. I've been on and off this site since 2004. While I'm not a prolific writer, there are times that circumstances inspire me to relieve (amuse) myself in a bit of wordplay. Over the years I've seen many writers come and go. I've also seen the site evolve in a very positive way from its younger beginnings. Where have all the "old" friends gone? Perhaps they are taking a break to relieve themselves in other interests. Hope so. As the membership continues to evolve with "newcomers", I will at times, rewrite and share older poems that were well received when originally posted. They do not age. When I have some spare time on my hands, I drop by to enjoy the writings of newer members. I'm never disappointed with the outstanding talent amassed here. I look forward to hearing from anyone who cares to comment here.

    LadyCosgrove: An interesting invitation that expects little and demands nothing. Intriguing even...

    TERMITE: Ah yes, there you are Lady Cosgrove, as anticipated, digging round the memories buried in my bone yard. As a cat on silent paws, breathes the whisper of a subtle purr..exploring, examining, tasting the vapors of my mind. You arrived in the deepest darkness of a long ago night, punctuated by the fading storm of ageing words. Thank you for taking me up on my subtle invite. I hope your stealthy curiosity was satisfied. PS: Read your comment section top to bottom and LMAO at your assessment of the outrageous insanity of the English language. Smilingly yours, Joe
