I approach writing as a gift - the process, the learning, the time and space, visitations from the Muse, and, most importantly, how it is received.  I write to share. To stay true to this ethos, I want to share my poems more widely; like so many creatives, I write much more than has (yet) been published or made publicly available. I've performed the poems herein at various gatherings - open mics, readings, in friends' living rooms and across dinner tables. To quote the wise and wonderful Lewis Hyde - "a gift must always move". May you find something here that moves you.
