Hello and welcome to my port(folio). My name is Ken and I'm a Virginian (by choice) and an optimist (by nature). I believe that a day without laughter is a day wasted. I love poetry and write it often although I have no one genre that I focus on. I've started writing short stories so I offer those as well. I welcome you to read, comment, and critique with the hope that, above all, you'll enjoy.
