Welcome!  I have created this blog to share some of my own poems, and some of my favorite works by the great poets.  I write mostly free verse and tanka, and you can find my poems by clicking on the categories to the right.
Here is a poem I wrote to my brother…

To Chris

You came tumbling down
from your upstairs bed
with heavy steps
and that wry grin
“No wonder I couldn’t wake up”.
you said.
We both laughed
as I turned down the volume
on a Brahms symphony.
Today, with strains of Bach in the air –
Sheep and Lambs
May Safely Graze
I pray these sounds
are heard in heaven –
and almost feel
your footsteps on the stairs.

  2. Hi Ken, I don’t know why it took me so long to find my way here! I’m enjoying your blog–especially your poignant poem “To Chris” and your many fine tanka. I look forward to reading more.
