Poetry

self-portrait-200x187I’ve always written poetry. Originally it was just for the buzz of writing something that sounded as good as I could make it; then it became a kind of need; then came the pressure… and now I’m hoping I can move on from some of that and just enjoy it again.

Below you’ll find a range of poetry from across the ages. Some of it has commentary, some stands alone; some of them even have an MP3 recording!

If you are passing by, make sure you leave a comment – doesn’t have to be nice, but make it real…
