Welcome to Wilderness

Welcome to Wilderness.  That's the title of  my new book of poems. Right now it's available only for kindle but there will be a print edition soon.

 Nature has always been my inspiration, whether the natural world or human nature. Some part of me still believes that poetry was the first form language took for our early ancestors and we have been rewriting ever since. 

Writing poems is easy compared to editing them.  I have been wanting to see this book make its debut for a long time. I believe there is more writing than rewriting here, and more of a connection with nature. Let me know what you think.

I wish I didn't have to write this

It is so sad and also infuriating to hear that terrorists targeted and killed journalists, humorists and cartoonists.  Yes, je suis Charlie.  And also, the pen is still mightier than the sword.
