Biography

I’m a poet, spoken word performer, and songwriter. Have authored two chapter books, Coffee Shop Sessions: Whatever It Takes, Even If It Doesn’t Take and Coffee Shop Sessions II: Moving Mountains One by One, both available on Amazon. Both are collections of poetry about love, reflection, travel, and nature. Finding beauty in all things surrounding you can be a struggle, but if you can do it, it’s a real gift. It is our duty to discover the magic between our connections and to seize the moment when it presents itself. Don’t be afraid to do what it takes which makes you feel alive.

Idling

Idle mind Idle thoughts Need a kick To jump start

In the Dead of Winter

These paths I walk all lead to snow White embankments filled with fluff Masking the truth underneath Holding us back three feet deep When will they release me Keeping me here like a prisoner Don't they see I want out The ground is frozen I can't move my fibers of life Shake, shake me out of this frozen tundra I'm itching for a new beginning

Secrets

The rain falls My soul weeps Masquerading All the secrets that we keep

Pilgrimage to the Motherland

Standing in the presence of history Witness all that has come before Bewildered in amazement What a glorious sight! Speak to me, my wise old poets, Speak to me while I stand here where it all began, Feed me your recipes Gathering in the Poetry room Circling around the Poet’s chair Cozied up in the corner, This is where I belong These are my people This is my truth

Thanks, Don, for the welcome.

If it takes too many lines
To say what you mean
You’ll lose the audience,
Keep them keen.

Make it four
Lines, succint
So they're linked
