    • I'm a 43 year old male from Northeast Tennessee, that only discovered the cathartic nature of writing poetry withing the past four months. Due to a divorce which I did not, do not, and will never want, my writing tends to be very dark and melancholic. I try to do something upbeat as often as I possibly can, but when my muse speaks, I write what she brings to me.

      I pray that one day I will be able to write about the happiness and joy of reuniting with my wife, who I now realize is and always has been my soul mate. Living without her has been extremely hard to adjust to. Just the absence of her voice is enough to drive me into a very deep depression, which I try to counter with poetry.


        • I have recently discovered an amazing writer who's poetry is absolutely brilliant. Her name is Nina Cassian. I just finished her book "Take My Word For It. " Give it a read and enjoy.

          I also enjoy Robert Frost, and Vladmir Nabakov, I"ve read Lolita five times.


        • Sade, Nora Jones, Jill Sobule, Amos Lee, and just about any other acoustic singer song-writer music. My Sirius satellite radio practically stays planted on the Coffee House.

        • Anything on the Food Network, Hero's, Monk.

        • Nina Cassian, Robert Frost, Mijhail Lermontov, Heinrich Heine, Walt Whitman, Charles Baudelaire, Constantine Cavafy, Rosalía de Castro.

        • "Do or do not, there is no try." -- Master Yoda

          "No matter where you go . . . there you are." -- Buckaroo Bonzai


        • I love fencing and look forward to getting back into the sport once the semester begins, after a very long hiatus. My favorite weapon is the Epee.

        • Cooking and gardening.

      Wrote an answer to your "Fish" poem -- been meaning to do that for awhile but still mastering the 'copy-paste' thing...I began to write right after my divorce as well(a long time ago!) and now think of it a little differently--figured my muse was stifled while I was married!
