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!

Thank You A Thousand Times!

** This is the one-thousandth (1,000) poem I have written and posted since joining Poetry Soup a couple of years ago, (12.6.16), at which time I had no intention of making poetry a "serious" thing, or anything beyond a hobby, lol ... you just never know, do you? It was meant as a farewell piece, but a dear friend here changed my mind ...

Despite the motivations behind that, I want to thank you all for the incredible kindness and encouragement you have shown me over these many months, as I was but an "ignorant newbie" when I showed up on this marvelous doorstep, (now a refuge), having written TWO poems in my entire life previous to joining, and barely knowing Free Verse from Rhyme, lol ...

I can't express sufficiently with words how much writing poetry now means to me, (I have always loved reading it) - what a huge part of my questionable existence it has become - but it was the sweet and thoughtful comments from all of you that made it so, proving once again that a website, much as anything in this world, is only as good as its people - members and administrators ...

As is ALSO true with most everything, some like my writing style, some don't, but I make no apologies in that respect, as I have tried my best to express myself with honesty, if nothing else, and within a unique framework  ... if that means sharing things a bit too personal, so be it, for poetry will rarely reach anyone if it isn't from the SOUL, (in my humble opinion) ...

Sincerest blessings and deepest appreciation to you all ... I can never repay the debt. ** <3

Blood, no stain, he thought,
Not even frost on the pane ...
Missed ... he'd not ever be.

(2) I lived in the Caribbean for a while so I know I'd enjoy the weather, (despite a lot of rain). I also want to see THIS country via RV, so I may do that for a couple of years first, visiting friends as I go. Thanks for your comments and friendship! :o) <3

Hi, Darlene - I won't be moving until after my elderly parents are gone, (they are both 93 and I take care of them at home). Some of the places I'm considering are Vanuatu, Tahiti, Samoa, Mauritius, and Bora Bora ... possibly the Marshalls or Fiji. My reason is simply because it's my dream ... since I was a small boy I have felt like I belonged there and my heart has longed for it. (continued)

That is something to celebrate Greg! You have come a long way in one year and you were born to discover your talent as a poet. How do you find out how many poems you have here? Congratulations my friend. I hope you continue to write and share your poetry here. xxoo

It's QUALITY not quantity, Dear Poet, and yours are ALL quality! Aloha! I may someday be a "neighbor", (technically), when I move to the South Pacific ... although I think most of those islands I'm interested in, (Vanuatu, Tahiti, Mauritius, Samoa, a couple of others), are a LONG way from you, lol! ;o) <3

(2) As far as counting, each page of your poems, (on your list of poems), has 100 poems on it, so when you reach page ELEVEN, you have at least 1,001 poems! Blessings, Dear Friend! :o) <3

The question as to what is a poet (or when one can call oneself a poet) has often arisen on various poetry sites. I would like to point them to your poetry which inspires me - you have set the bar high, my friend. A poet is someone who has the courage to wear his heart on his sleeve, and you certainly do that, Greg. Regards, Su

My bias leans to the Bard being one of the most poesy poets on PS. Your work is enviable; your talent obvious; your soul on heartfelt display. Chart your course but PS always will relish your attendance. :o)

A poet is a poet, is a poet, is a poet my great friend. Your poetry exhibits the depths, beauty and heart that fine poetry must have. And also your character and kindness both are blessings to this poetry site and certainly to myself in particular. Your first poem that I read told me you are a poet to be read, enjoyed and supported in your poetic journey! Stay true to your calling my poetic brother in arms...

Greg, farewell poem? How could you even consider such a thing? You have too much poetic talent for that to happen! But, I know it must be difficult with your father needing you more and more. Step back at times but never leave for you would be greatly missed. And as a poet who writes some dark poems sometimes difficult to read I do because I must, for it all pours from my soul and I think you are the same ~ Your poem is quite beautiful !

Yes, you're right, Constance, the darkness pours from my soul sometimes, and like you, I have to write it down. There's always something positive that comes from it though - a healing, a kind comment, someone who shares those feelings, a peace from venting - always something.
