Fragile Shell Of Morning

Joy Restored

Love A Cat

Home, Ghuey, Sweet Home

The Crow Is A Songbird

Upwards Into The Swirling Sea Of White.

July's Message

And With Words I Let Them Go

When He Returns From The Road

Flashes, Glimpses, Moments, Time

the brand of disappointment

Some Will

What If

A Little Bit of Harlem in Your Life

Please Don't Bring Me Flowers

No Woman's Friend

A Man Called Tsuris

If This Is Any Art For Which You Care

Sometimes I Hear Him

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

Sometimes Love Comes With Electricity

I Long For Stars

Every Time I Listen To the Wind.

Some People

She Is My Friend

Beware The Sign of Sagittarius

Need You (note of encouragement to self)

why not ask the cat?

The Un-Promised Land

I Travel Every Time I Think Of You

Poem Untitled, But, If Not For You

If I Were Your Island....

Poetry is often a conversation.
Briefly with the world, but mostly with myself.
I'm not required to write everyone's truth. Just my own.
I share my story. You're not required to see as I do.
Often I see things others don't
Poetry can be very personal. Its my way of making sense
 of what is at times,  none-sensical--
(Yes, I did just make up my own word--)
or, just plain nonsense.

Finally, poetry is a recording of certain facts:
the fact that I was here, that my life had meaning,
that I and my words and ideas matter.
Its my wish to preserve, to make indelible.

Pour your soul onto the paper...
I dare you.
May poetry bring you the same bliss it has given me.
