Why write poetry, Poet?
Using my imagination has always brought me a great deal of pleasure. Poetry is
providing me now with a venue for expressing my deepest feelings, as well
as the lighter ones. It promotes beautiful order in my complex inner world.
I no longer feel mute. It is both healing and fun.
How did you get started writing poetry?
A few months ago I wrote my first poem.
Remembering the advice given to the young student in the movie 'FINDING FORRESTER',
I didn`t pause to think about what I was going to write, I simply began.
Who were your influences?
My Father wrote storytelling prose when the spirit moved him.
With fingers fairly flying over the typewriter keys, he was at his happiest.
Reading humorous poetry out loud as a family, and private reading of Chaucer, Shelley, Keats, Frost,
and my beloved Burns gave my love of poetry, deep, endurable roots.
