ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Welcome to my blog of poetry. I began the blogging my poetry in 2010, and since then, I have written over 500 poems, and acquired a talented group of followers. I removed most of my poetry due to revision, and left only a small selection of poems. Soon, I will publish my work back on to my blog, and as always, I encourage criticism, interpretations, opinions, comments, and questions. If one truly is committed to writing, then, it is no secret, you must be comfortable with any and all feedback.
A Word on my Poetry:
Poetry is the expression of all life’s thoughts, and truths, it mirrors the authors interpretations of life’s dilemmas, perspective, and empathy. The greatest of poems are not subjected to hours, days, or years of thought; rather, they are subjected to one moment of true insight, tailored by the emotional response of the author’s need to channel his, or her abilities to interpret the very meaning of their insight. The greatest truths can be found inside the pages of poetry, philosophy, and fiction, for they are a means of revealing truths, in such a manner to liberate the authors of repercussions. Do not have mercy on the writer, because he or she will have no mercy in their abilities as a wordsmith to create verses of powerful wordplay intended to strike the chords of the readers’ own emotions.
“A poem cannot be right, nor wrong, it can only be perceived as it is by the reader as a justification, or explanation of the readers particular experience in accordance to the nature of its’ interpretation” – WB
