I could call this a poetry blog but a man once said that too many people are calling themselves poets today when the truth is that they are nowhere near being poets. It takes years to develop that type of skill and understanding of language.
Based upon that observation I will state that I am not a poet but an artist who places words in good order.
I write mainly free verse about whatever is tugging or not tugging hard enough at my heartstrings, the world’s heartstrings, and society’s heart strings. I have been doing this for 12 years and feel that now is the time to expose myself – close your eyes.
My mission is to be heard and to allow other people to be heard.
This is Gray Words, an honest portrayal of my heart that goes mainly unedited.
Nearly all of what can be read in this blog is unedited first drafts. Is this a good idea or a bad idea exposing myself and my writing in such a raw form? I’ll leave that to you to decide.
I am teacher, artist, bored.
