Poet Introduction

I love to write on the edge: Not all significant poetry goes down like warm soup: Don't fear the burn It just might awaken you: In the words of Jim Morrison... 'Wake up!' (I don't remember where I am either).. Note:  I write heartwarming stuff too..

Favorite Poets/Writers

Jim Morrison / 'Celebration of the Lizard King' , Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, Maya Angelou

I'm nobody, Who are you?     -Emily Dickinson

'When a woman has scholarly inclinations there is usually something wrong with her sexuality.        -Nietzsche

I am in my forties and have been writing poetry in silence for years but now I post....

The following are  poems from my current collection, Afternoon Tarnish,
a deeply existential and labarynthine collection that expresses my progression
of growth into interesting writing... I call it 'modern existentialism'...
Its becoming something of an expose'... I am open to publishing some day...
I am also writing a collection of classical inspirations.
I am still working on the 'piece de resistance', a love epic and short story

Also I will post some poems from my older collection, Noon Realizations,
which I wrote in my thirties, and it reflects an earlier more simplistic style...

Also to come are some excerpts from my book, 'Journals to My True Love'
which were written by journaling in notebooks, literally and are more or less
a fantastical story and self journey.... Part 1 was written in my thirties and Part 2 is ongoing.....

To all poets :  Poetry is art, not a textbook... Believe in your art and you will succeed!

More to come....
