i'm starting to publish poems from over a decade ago. hopefully doing this and being among poets online will inspire me to write again after a few years of absence.

i worked as a teacher, community organizer, translator/interpreter, and social worker between then & now. i'm in early retirement and drawing on creative reserves to enjoy what i've started in my youth, which is writing poetry & making art.

if you'd like to publish my poetry in any form, complete or quoted, electronic or printed, please contact me directly. all copyrighted material. i use a pen name. if you'd like to publish my poetry in any form, please contact me directly on this site. thank you.

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
