Dreamt a dream
about falling asleep,
woke up in yet another one—
a near-seamless string
of dreams within dreams.

As I become older,
I continue to retain the heart
of an eternal child. Sort of like Peter Pan—

and I will always take my chances
with Captain Hook.

I find talking about myself in third person
to be creepy, and refuse to do it
unless it's somehow connected
to a major deal that offers me mullah.

I'm a Canuck who grew up in the Canadian
Pacific Northwest.
Aside from writing, I enjoy visual art
and bonsai as creative outlets.
I love mountain biking.
I'm a gardener, bio-chemist,
and parent of a talented child
who continues to out-shine her Dad.

I don't do conventional all that well;
I come as I am,
and hope that you come as you are,
as friend or foe,
so that we can learn and benefit
from each other.

PoetrySoup.com is the first site
where I posted a poem online.
