2011 Alaska Senior Poet Laureate
Albert L. Baker
Albert L. Baker, 75, is a Guest Senior Poet whose imaginary
treks from Skagway to Juneau enable him to photograph
invisible polar bears at work and play. He is filling the Alaska
slot, since no entries were received from the state of Al's dreams.
A former professional photographer, he's been webmaster since
the Senior Poets Laureate contest and GOLDEN WORDS
anthologies began appearing exclusively online in 2004. Al writes
a few poems--very few--all of which reveal a secret about him:
he's a grass-roots philosopher who likes end rhymes sans
punctuation. His sign is Aquarius.
