Out of the quarrel with ourselves,
we make poetry.
– W. B. Yeats

Welcome to My Writings: Original Poems
As a life-long creative writer, I have dabbled in many forms: poems, short stories, flash fiction, memoir, and essays that focus on a variety of topics including history and politics. I also write songs and create vegetarian/vegan recipes.
This page is dedicated to providing links to a sampling of my poems; to sample some of my songs, please visit my “Original Songs.” Other works are forthcoming
Thank you for visiting my literary home! Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome.
