Being a short person, I like short poetry, especially the Japanese forms. A 5-5-5 (go-go-go) pattern so far best accommodates my writing voice. I am a compulsive rewriter.
This site is dedicated to J. Kirk Richards of Sanford, Florida and to Sharon Asselin of San Francisco. The former saved my life a couple of times and the latter gave me poetry.
Influences are Emily Dickinson, James Wright, Basho, Daisaku Ikeda, and Li Po. My favorite ice cream is Chunky Monkey and I like staying in the van while others revel on long walks at the beach.
