I am a poet, I love to write and do so from my heart. I am a 62 year old just retiring from the legal profession and am looking forward to having more time to working on my writing skills. I have been crafting poems for only about the last 15 months or so and I would love some feedback on my work to help me grow as a writer. I know the best way to learn is to read and I am very much looking forward to reading the work of others.


Eternity in a Teacup Trust and acceptance, A microcosm of eternity in a tea cup. Mist rising above the warm river In a cold autumn morning is A gift of dependability, its existence subtly proves a force and a Fact indisputable. Duck wings and long necks stretched out in flight, silhouetted against the gray sky, Are an acceptance of what there is… now, without question, To question would mean to fall To fall from the sky with only their doubts to save them. My directionless ramblings in words and thoughts Become the transcript of my search. Just as the crumpled texture of a double-sided, hand written note is A physical manifestation of my thoughts and the background noise of my being.

Thankyou for your comment on my Assumptions poem. It means more to me than anyone could know that somebody gets something, whatever that something is, from a topic so close to my heart. I am hoping to write more on topics similar to this to raise awareness and understanding in a positive way!

Thankyou again for your comment Michelle,
Take care
