Welcome to the other side of me. Poetic language is the most powerful form of human communication. With invisible thread stronger and more delicate than anything humanly imaginable, it binds the world of rules and meaning to that place before and beyond which words exist. Where words fail, poetry does justice to the infinity within our souls.
When it comes to birthing poems, I stand in awe. I truly believe they are gifts. Each one is a journey of the heart, offering glimpses into the beauty and complexities of our shared existence. I have written about this in the preface to Flotsam and Jetsam: a half-life of poems.
On this page, I include poems that may or may not be in that collection. Some include links to blogs where you can read their backstory and/or find them on my YouTube channel.
