Poetry is and has been many things to me in my life.  It has kept me from drowning beneath the weight of grief when dealing with the death of my father or the loss of a love... it has been a comfort, something familiar when I was far away from home... and it has been a method of self-discovery, an adventure which really only has one ending.  Whatever it is, poetry is fascinating to me, and I don't make any apologies for the poems of mine that you will find below (though maybe that's unwise!).  Enjoy the selection... it'll be added to when I get the time.
