|A personal note:|
From age 9 to age 21, my life was consumed with writing poetry. I wrote thousands of poems, published many, won several awards and was motivated always by the need to express my feelings by making music with words. However, in college at Tufts, my poetic wellspring dried up. I turned my attention to spirituality and the study of religion and began a long quest of finding spiritually what I was no longer able to find in my own emotional life and creative inspiration.
In the 30+ years since then, I have had occasional reawakenings to poetry, although my focus shifted to religion, then astrology, then dreamwork, then transpersonal psychology, then nature photography, photoshop, then Greek mythology,
Now, finally, in 2004, I begin to reawaken my poetic self again, and experience the spirituality of the soul rather than the mind. My vision is to combine my own poetic psychological/spiritual writings with photography and continue to create and post each new expression of my continually awakening soul and heart. My hope is that I will inspire each of you reading my poems to connect with your own Muse, and to sing more loudly and clearly and freely, your own song.

Several years later: I have decided not to post any poetry written after 2004 since Web posting is considered "previously published" and ineligible for print publication in most literary magazines. But I will keep the poems above posted here - hopefully, for your enjoyment.
