Poet Bio

He sought stones. Cradled them
in his hands. Worried their crevices
with spit and sweat.

Polished them in his tumbler
to seek their secrets, cracked
with hammer and chisel

to reveal a hidden hollow,
Magnificat concretions
of color, crystals gleaming

new to a sun never-before
seen, sharp symmetry to
his small probing finger,

not unlike the beauty
of his curious brain
with its cauliflower

corrugations that will
reflect creations
into the world.
