I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet’s Heart…life can prove to be quite a harsh place for the soul…It scratches and wears down your soul, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I allow them to be…but it’s the ones you don’t want to allow that can teach you the most. By my nurture, I can be overdetermined and forget these opportunities to see the world from another perspective. By my nature, I Empathize with Everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything…probably too much
I am a published Satirist & published Poet. I’ve always loved writing & it never intimidated me…nothing creative did. Creativity was my wheelhouse like others can play any sport to can do anything in the outdoors (though the writing was always my own private Idaho go to & being published did intimidate me because of what others might think). Even if I’m not inspired, I can sit down & within 10 minutes my heart has opened & I’m pouring it into the keyboard…its who I am & I want to share my gift with others & do something that I think is worthy. I’m a physically disabled American & all I want is visibility & freedom to roam. A gypsy child at heart, I have 2 or 4 checkered backgrounds that are unbelievable when you read my satire & the insightful ones will see that I thread story arcs through my poetry collections. I arrange my collections like a musical set list so that you can read all the single pieces & then pan out & discover I’ve hidden a story arc in there.
I’m a left aligned satirist & center aligned poet…I really enjoy writing poems & making them take on shapes like something as simple as a ball or more complex like a pagoda.
I love words & I love playing with them more so. You will find alliteration, always rhymes, double entendre & creative wordplay in my work!
Enjoy what’s to come…
