Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A child of Poetry denies heritage of the woman who brought his words to life.
Poetry isn't my first language
but a beating rhythm
first discovered
in my mother's belly
-- my fraternal twin --
conceived yet undelivered
until I set pencil to spiral notebook.

it revealed itself
-- having hidden in my flesh --
imprinted on shared DNA.
Celtic roots
like risen cream
giving birth over and over
to her traditional flavor
tamed by a foolish boy
-- with ideas of his own --
only to return inevitable
crying for the womb
to heal eyes, ears, mouth
show all
what love and words
truly are made of.
