Poet Bio

I sketch my thoughts,
the staff of my life;
soul thoughts,
in cryptic codes.

I listen to the power of words,
and follow the trail of
deeply engraved memories
and participate
in the luring dance of my dreams…

I grab passionately
to the words sourced by my senses,
to the enlightenment they bring;
to me… and through me.

I realize the entanglement.

They become my breathing in the wind,
my tears when disappointment strikes
and the creative outlet of my thinking.


I then shape them;
colourfully and concisely
and realize…

My poems are the whispers of my soul.
