Poetry has been my friend since early childhood. My father, himself a poet, would recite all manner of poems to me at bedtime. Poems were my bedtime stories. I have grown in poetry over these many years until I now find meaning and solace in expressing myself with my own poems (still much influenced by my father, I'm sure). I write for the joy that poetry brings to my life. I am particularly hopeful that my poems will bring joy and meaning to others when I am no longer of this earth.
