I claim membership in the community of creative folk, those who seek goodness and sweetness in all things of Nature, and in fellow human beings.
And as a means of giving back for all I have received, I write, poetry mostly.
Because words have their subtle ways of coaxing, and I would use mine for goodness only, to bless and inspire any who read them. And if my words bring the slightest comfort or a twinge of delight, if my images expand someone’s sense of wonder and appreciation of the natural world, if what I write draws the reader closer to experiencing the Oneness of Creation.
It is enough.
Wishing you sweetness on your journey.

This is so interesting to me because I lost my sight 11 years ago. I am a retired professor of fine arts and humanities. Sight loss cannot take away my passion for life or for the things I love. I can see in your poems the same passion. It is refreshing, for me, to read your poems and envision them through my own blind-sighted experiences and challenges.
Disability is a topic I seldom discuss in my writing except for articles I write as a Peer Advisor for VisionAware ( on AFB’s website).
Thank you for commenting! I’ve learned blindness can add many complications to life, but it need not squash it entirely. Everything I was before I lost my eyesight at the age of 12–a lover of books and learning, a spiritual seeker, an enthusiast of music and poetry, a friend–
–I remain, through and through. And while I continue to wrestle with the term “disability”, blindness is a significant element of my life experience which often weaves itself into my writing.
Looking forward to your articles and posts of your new interests. I wish you all the very best. God Bless ❤
How sweet to find you here! Thank you for your kind words. Blessings to you.
