Why write poetry, Poet?
Poetry is a release, an outlet, sometimes a message, and an opportunity to express my feelings and
thoughts on particular subjects or topics that I feel strongly about.
Who were your influences?
My family researched and constructed a family tree and in the process they discovered that my mother's side of the family is related to Robert Burns, Scotland's greatest poet.
My influences were my daughter who encourages me to look through more than my own eyes; my family; my friend who is an awesome attorney and the actor Mr. Keanu Reeves, who inspired me with his awesome talents and truth.
There are many people who influence my writings, either directly or indirectly, for all of those people, I wish to give acknowledgment.
Examples of poetry.
Who are the Scots?
Thomas Blake Glover (1838 - 1911) Born in Aberdeenshire, Glover went to Shanghai in China and then to Nagasaki as agent of the Jardine Matheson trading company. He was awarded the highest 'Order of the Rising Sun' for his contribution to modernising Japan, through industrialisation and smuggling Japanese students abroad to gain a better education. He may have provided the model for Puccini's 1904 Opera 'Madame Butterfly'.
