New Poem of the Week speaks to Human potential


final frontier

the mountain isn’t going to come to you,
you have to go to the mountain

is the epiphany i am having
just before he quietly breaks the silence

without turning to me he says,
“That’s the final frontier.”

we are gazing outward from our planet
through the starry skies of our short arm
of the Milky Way Galaxy

Upcoming readings and book signings


Dear subscribers and fans!

Due to the rampant Feedburner malfunction running through the web, I lost over a twelve hundred subscribers overnight. Please re-subscribe to my blog if you are no longer subscribed and share what you love of my work with others.  I am hoping to regrow / regain my network of subscribers quickly.

I also have a few readings and book signings scheduled in support of my book, Span having been published in paperback. My reading in Ward, CO had to be rescheduled but I am greatly looking forward to it sometime in November.  If you know poetry lovers in the Denver / Boulder region, please pass this link along to them.
