I have dabbled in poetry for many years, but just in the past few years poetry seems to have found me. This probably happens to poets through age and exposure... a patina of sorts. With the ecouragement of my family and friends, I have spent much more time exploring and sharing the poetry that arrives. Defining this is a challenge, but I prefer to call it painting with words and there truly is no right or wrong. Thank you for taking the time to take in my first book of "paintings", my poetry... I hope we meet again soon!
