Human Being Middle School Teacher Poet/Songwriter I live in the Pacific Northwest, near Seattle. I would like to engage with other poets in reading and receiving and offering feedback on poems. Would also love to know about any readings or workshops in the area. Thanks.


Persona non grata I want to dream big sitting still as a heron s-necked and watching knees bent poised undistracted by endlessly changing surface looking deep past reflection hungry for each possibility of success balanced wings plunging beak every small black shadow below feeds my dream

That poem on your 'bio' today is superb. I'm nowhere up to speed as usual. If it's been there for ages, I didn't see it until today. Last two lines are especially fine.

Hallelujah! - so to speak - for someone who uses 'intuit' as casually as 'hear' or 'speak'. It is a SPLENDID word, not given nearly enough credence. IMO, of course.

Hey Adam,

There was no need for you to apologize!

I appreciate all comments made about my work- the good, the bad and the ugly, lol.

Constructive criticism motivates one to step up their game, so to speak. I certainly do not take it as a personal affront.

Glad you liked Three Empty Words.

Please continue to comment, and feel free to give an honest opinion - it's what I EXPECT of you.

Love the picture on your bio - the sheer physics of it!

I presume, by extension, that you might like to keep 'things in balance'? Probably all things?

Or you are just plain playful, self-challenging!

Adam, thank you for commenting on my poems. I particularly enjoyed Olympic Mountains as it had that impressionist flavour, a genre of poetry I am very drawn to. Keep writing Adam as your work has a special quality, which over time, will achieve your own personal brand of poetry. I look forward to observing your progress.

That’s some powerful poetry you are sharing Adam. One makes me want to go swimming and float for eternity, another reminds me of a time capsule that could be opened 1,000 years from now to decipher how we made it through the mayhem to continue the human race. Definitely adding you to my favorites to enjoy your lyrical lessons❣️???

Hi Adam, thanks for the comment on Murmur Love. I'm just trying to encourage a shy artist into expressing themselves out loud. Looking forward to reading (and listening to) yours in the next few days. T

I've noticed the chat window problem with older versions of Windows. I don't have it with 10, but my work computer, Windows 9, I think, or whatever came before 10, has the same behavior.

Hello Adam! Loved your sample and may I say impressiove bio! I wish I could write songs! I wonder, is your sample a sestina? I recently did one, two in fact...yours is far better!
Anyway, welcome ?
