Poet Bio

Ingenious states of mind:
ease; simplicity; lightness; and brevity.

Ubiquitous margins describing utopia?
The remote peripheries.

The target?
Innate, guileless, innocent and simple
intentions, plans and creativity.

You (and I)
most rank ‘good’ delicious …
the goal, the act, the heart.

In the beginning:
division, grades, speech, distance and time –
beautiful, flavoursome, good and happy …
naturally inclined towards the optimal unmanifest potential
in each emerging moment.

Return to that memory.
