Poetry for Adults
Poetry is often how I process a life experience that feels poetic to me, no matter what that is and no matter what emotion it embodies.
Not all experiences become poetry—some become essays, articles, fiction, or even picture books.
But the ones that are to become poetry make themselves known by a certain deep feeling. And then it is up to me to find the right words to give form and content to the poem-to-be.
I hope that my work, though quite personal, has universal value for its readers.
