About Me and My Poetry

I live in Mildura, Victoria in Australia. My occupation is as an Upholsterer of Furniture and Automotive. I love to travel long distances by car, but as yet have not ventured out of the country. I have always loved to read and write poetry, as it gives an insight into ones psyche. Being a sensitive person also helps when it comes to writing. I love to work and create with my hands, and also love cooking. I believe in duality, cause and effect and so on, everything has a purpose in our lives.

wisping tendrils of incense evoke my spirit
some memories are more than l can handle.
