Welcome to my page!

I am a man of many interests - TOO many, I think, lol - and because of that I never gave writing the attention I should have when I was young. I started writing poetry in December of 2016, and joined Poetry Soup at the same time. I am currently working on an R&B/Soul album for a major label, so, as has usually been the case, poetry does not get the time I'd like to give it, (though I plan to change that in the future, and write a book-or-two, a sci-fi novel and an autobiography) ...

I like to incorporate classic styles and phrasing into a modern frame when I write poetry, and try to cover a wide range of genres, but I enjoy the darkly sensual the most, despite its limited audience. I hope you'll give my rather unusual style a chance, read a piece-or-two, and leave a comment, if you'd be so kind. I also hope you'll visit my music web site as well, (at the following address under my moniker "Bahku") - mostly (very) old recordings there, but also a snippet of the first single coming, and more new stuff soon!

Thanks for stopping by my page - blessings!

Brings back painful memories Greg because in grammar school I unwittingly peed on an electric cow fence ... never did it again!

Holy cow! Dairy me! I've never herd this before but I'm gonna milk it for all it's worth. What a laughing stock. The only beef I have with this kine of blog is that it kowtows to weaners. Now you may think I'm talking bull but that's udder nonsense. I have a pretty thick hide but cud ya steer away from any cowardly ribbing. I don't wish to be unfairly branded. Cowabunga dude!

Suzanne, I know you're all thinking I've got a touch of the Mad Cow but I'm all punned out. Lovely to see you out and about on the blogs. The more the merrier.

Be careful, Keith: I know they have de-horned bulls for less bellowing than this. Wouldn’t want to brand an agitator. Lol

It would be-hoove you to steer away from the cow tales for now ... but not for heifer, (besides, those cloven beasts are just not kosher).
