I’ve posted four new poems. “The World Stopped Turning” is a poem very much about love at first sight. I think each of us has experienced that head spinning feeling of falling love. The poem is an attempt to recreate that feeling.
“How Rich Am I” is a social commentary poem. I have never considered material wealth to be significant in my life. Instead I have sought to experience the wealth of nature and feelings. I invite my readers to do the same.
“Wars to be Fought” is one of my personal favourites and I encourage each of you to read and re-read beyond its verse. There is far more going on in this poem than a cursory reading of it suggests. The allegories regarding the Sun are there for a reason. The poem speaks to the eternal struggle each of us experiences.
“Over Your Shoulder” is a love poem. Its about watching and loving from afar. As a parent I often want to directly intervene in my children’s affairs knowing full well that I’d not be working in their best interest were I to do so. The poem speaks to the helplessness mingled with pure love that we feel.
