Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.  Edgar Allan Poe

The poet doesn’t invent. He listens.  Jean Cocteau

I think that we’re beginning to remember that the first poets didn’t come out of a classroom, that poetry began when somebody walked off of a savanna or out of a cave and looked up at the sky with wonder and said, “Ahhh.” That was the first poem. Lucille Clifton


Thanks for taking the time to read some of my poetry.

I enjoy writing it and I hope you enjoy reading it.

Some of these are more like song lyrics, but I like how they read.
