Young bookworm

What the candystore was to other kids, the bookstore was to me. The library was my vacation.

Getting by with a little help

Pharmaceutical companies will soon rule the world if we keep letting them believe that we are a happy, functional society so long as all the women are on Prozac, all children on Ritalin, and all men on Viagra.

HTML hangover

«I» need to «p»,
just as groggy as I can «/b»!
Can't get my «head» straight,
my «/body» aches,
barely remember my «name».
Stayed up this morning
'til quarter of five —
couldn't get out
of the programming jive.

Seek & find

There is no need to reach high for the stars. They are already within you — just reach deep into yourself!

Nourishment

Water, sunshine, soil —
essential for growing flowers;
but would they not flourish
all the better with a
sprinkling of poetry?

People flourish better when splattered with creativity.

Quiet time with my soul

I love writing poetry because poetry can be anything you want it to be — just like daydreaming. There are no rules except those in your heart and your own pen. Poetry is reverie on paper.
