What inspires one to write? For me it is an irresistible urge to assemble words together that results in the creation of imagery that I experience when I look at the world around me. I can not remember a time that I was not writing, especially poetry. To write a poem is to use the fewest words to create a glimpse into a new world or perspective.

Velvet green Into a cotton shawl
Air drifts through Over, within
Radiating across Blinding light
A fragile net floating A shifting pattern Merges and shapes
Velvet, cotton and light Becomes a tapestry Shielding all
