I invite you to enter my website - and my poetic world ...

Why read poetry? In a world of instant access and 24/7 availability, it is all too easy to fail to take time to appreciate the finer things in life. These things can help restore our emotional balance when the stresses and pressures of everyday living throw us out of kilter. Poetry is an integral part of the human spirit. Throughout the ages it has been a measure of our hopes, our fears, our joys, our tears ... our humanity.

As you view the world through the poet's eye, may you find the key to unlock the secrets of your heart.
