"Imagine a ship across the ocean that faithfully sails back home. You have to know that I’m anchored close, and my heart shall dare not let you go."

From my original romantic poem "You Have to Know"

About Chris

Welcome to Painting You With Words.   I am Chris Wood and a Texas boy from Dallas!  I have just started writing passionate poetry again in the last several years.  My recent years have been spent in the consulting world related to web applications, streaming media and software technology.  I also served at Southern Methodist University in Dallas for 12 wonderful years as a full time university chaplain and minister.  Most of my close friends tell me that I probably get a little too clever sometimes for my own good!  I will do my best to write from my heart.  I hope you enjoy my original poetry.

What I Do

I will be sharing my original poetry and possibly spotlighting the works of other contemporary poets.  My focus will be on romantic love and playful passionate poetry.
