As a writer,
I am perhaps best known for creative non-fiction and poetry on a wide variety of
subjects, especially inspiration and spirituality, but also politics,
literature and humor. My essays, stories, poetry and columns have appeared
online and in print through the years. I currently maintain a body of
my most recent work(poetry) at a "blog" hosted by
Google. Just follow this link: Haiku
Crossings. I now consider myself a "haiku" poet,
with recent appearances in various journals, including Frogpond, Prune
Juice, The Heron's Nest, Contemporary Haibun Online, Simply Haiku and
Haibun Today, among others.
Notice: I am NOT closing down this website in favor of a blog.
Crossings and Reflections Weblog is also still available.
