the rain was falling like soft tears

but has hardened now into snow—
this can often happen with the heart
as well as with the weather

Bio (auto)

My poetry has appeared in nine countries in such literary journals as The Cannon’s Mouth, Ascent Aspirations, generations and Write On!!! I am a student at the University of Tennessee- Knoxville, where I have studied poetry in workshop settings with such poets as Jesse Janeshek, Marilyn Kallet, Arthur Smith, and Marcel Brouwers. In my work I juxtapose concrete images with abstract notions, often write in structures such as unr1hyming couplets and triadic verse, stress economy, and utilize such literary conceits as the ekphrasis poem, parallel structure and the incorporation of mythology within my work.
