  1. Hello, I’m a writer of essays, short stories, but mostly poetry. It’s nice to know there are others pursuing this brief, and sometimes foolish jaunt.

    1. “Jaunt”—love the word. It takes a special individual to dedicate most of their time and all of their mind to an activity so few others care for. I said we were special, but just downright strange maybe the case. I can’t account for the hardwork and dedication we put in to this private wordplay. To quote a poem by my favorite poet, Gerald Costanzo, “Over
      and over I do it, not for the fame,
      god, not for the money,
      but for what darker, sweeter
      compensation?”

  2. Especially when one has reached my age.
    It’s a surprise when someone’s seen my stage.
    Though sometime my rhymes might make you rage.
    Thanks for connecting at my blog page.
