“Beware of advice--even this.”--Carl Sandburg.
After writing poetry, fiction, and technical reports for
sixty years my ambitions burn close to the bottom
of the wick, my goals have become simplistic--just
keep on writing. Over the years, my association with
dVerse has thrilled and enticed me, educated me,
and helped to implement divers change in my style.
Now Haibun has become my favorite form, and I
enjoy the freedom to get creative with it.
30 years ago I wanted to get published, believing
that this somehow would validate my talent and
authenticity. Many of the poets I know finance their
own publications--this just doesn’t appeal to me. In a
decade my poetry blog has logged in more than a
million visitors, and the international fellowship within
dVerse assures that my creative fires remain well lit.
“It is a good time to be a poet, but the pay is still
become my reigning passion;
poetry stands alongside.
