What is a metaphor? It is a cornerstone of poetry. Metaphors provide a tangible image for ideas and emotions. And metaphors can be found everywhere, in everything seen, heard, or experienced.

Like all poets, I write to discover my soul and reach emotional truths.I love the puzzle of words. Arranging them, rearranging them, until the words make the picture I want. Poetry helps me visualize my emotions with concrete imagery.

For example my poem, “"Missing Tokens” comments on the discontinuation of traditional Monopoly pieces. I complain that I didn’t vote “to blackball beloved tokens.” Yet I continue to roll the dice and keep playing “till I’m all out of paper money.”
In recalling a trip to Bermuda and the way houses are constructed to withstand hurricanes, I am reminded “how even in paradise one must be prepared to weather storms.”
