For the most part, I'm a romantic poet, but I also venture into satire, humor, nature, spirituality, existentialism, etc. I don't shy away from the sad and dark themes as well. I started writing poetry in November 2006. However, after losing my poetry notebook with about 135 poems in early 2009, I lost my passion for poetry completely. I was jobless for almost a year due to the recession of 2014, during that time period, I reignited my passion for poetry to stave off boredom. I discovered Poetrysoup and started posting my poems in 2016. The first poem I posted, "Wings of A Butterfly." My poems "Sing To Me, Nightingale", "Unfulfilled Dream" and "A Waxing Crescent" appeared in the first issue of Poesis Online Journal. My biography and poem "Musings of An Aging Man"  features in the "My Poet Friends" section of Emile Pinet's poetry book, "A Match In The Dark." My poems "Say You Will", "Winds of Night" and "Echo Chasing" appeared in the "PS: It's Poetry" Anthology." My poems "Apogee of Grief", "To Be Loved" and "Sweet on You" appeared in the "PS: It's Still Poetry, Volume 2" Anthology"
