Well,I am still a newbie, and still stumbling about trying to find my way around the site. I have however placed items in my portfolio, one of which, a short story, I purged for personal reasons. As some may have read it, I wanted to provide this explanation for why it is gone.
Eventually I will offer some fiction, but for the moment it is going to be poetry only.
I wrote my first poem, a sonnet, at the age of 18, but unfortunately I have lost it. While most of my earlier poems were written in rhyming verse, which I still enjoy, my later work is largely written in free verse. Comments, suggestions, and criticism, are most welcome.
