Poetry is a purgative, not a panacea. It isn't there to make you feel better. It's there to make you FEEL. An active poet since the mid-nineties, I've written hundreds of pieces using a variety of styles. Though I'm most frequently a free verse poet with modern delivery, I will use or create forms if the mood strikes. My favorite poetic forms are Haikus, Haibuns, and Ghazals. Unlike much of my fiction, I don't write my poetry with genre in mind. Read on, if you want to see my style up close.
