Poems and more...
A Love Letter
A Word
Went on a Caribbean Cruise
I was
Ode to a Naked Mannequin
The Nightmare
There's an empty space
When the tyranny
Sitting on a limb
The words are becoming
Left California
The Search
Another Thought
A Short Story
The swirling simplicity
I'm a separate
The black hole
I've given up
The New
The Winds of Crete
A Song
A Message
• A Question?
An Answer
And suddenly



A Question?

But what of the spaces
                       Left unexplored?
The secret places where
                       Dreams are stored?
Do I have to accept with
                       Intellectual cheer.
The pressure of someone else’s fear?
There’s much of life
                       I’m liable to miss,
If I settle for a circumscribed
Instead of the wonderment of
                       An unknown abyss.
