About Me
 Since life, and indeed the world, are conceptions, assemblages
and progressions of rhyme and unreason, I read anything
no matter how obnoxious or unreasonable. So please pardon
the blankness and plasticity of my poems.
A poem is a means of capture. Then it offers release - Dan Beachy-Quick  
A poem is never finished, only abandoned.  - Paul Valery (1871 - 1945)  
I've always associated the moment of writing with a moment of lift, of joy,
of unexpected reward. I always believed that whatever had to be written
would somehow get itself written…The word "poet" still has an aura -
 that's why people want it so much.
             - Seamus Heaney (b. 1939); winner Nobel Prize for Literature 1995
Poems should be written rarely and reluctantly,
under unbearable duress and only with the hope
that good spirits, not evil ones, choose us for their instrument
 - Czeslaw Milosz, Selected Poems: 1931-2004; winner Nobel Prize for Literature 1980
When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.  -  J.F.Kennedy (1917 - 1963)
Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings
..takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.
Williams Wordsworth (1770 – 1850)
I believe in poetry as a way of surviving the emotional chaos,
spiritual confusions and traumatic events that come with being alive
- Gregory Or (b.1954)
Like the voyages of Columbus,
Poetry consists less of finding
What you set out to find,
Than in learning to live
With what you've stumbled across. - John Stone (b.1936)
  Life however long will always be short.
Too short for anything to be added.
                     - Wislawa Szymborska(b.1923); winner Nobel Prize for Literature 1996   What will survive of us is love - Philip Larkin 1922-1985, An Arundel Tomb
