Poet Introduction

I write mainly poetry for the inner journey. I also have a feisty side-line of writing poetic commentaries on the war industry and politics & culture. Current favourite quote: "Poetry is where death is robbed of the last word" (Olga Broumas)

Favorite Poets/Writers

Simon Armitage, Carol Ann Duffy, Alice Fulton, Wilfrid Owen, Sylvia Plath
