Stephen Jarrell Williams


I've always wanted
a simple existence,
to be at ease in the sun,
quiet walks beside the river,
smooth flow of water,
deep thoughts,
call of someone in the distance
bringing me home,
sleeping beside her,
keeping me from running wild.


Stephen Jarrell Williams was born in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, to native Texans. He has lived most of his life in California. His work has appeared in hundreds of publications. He loves to write, listen to his music, and dance late into the night.
