I am going to begin sharing my poetry on here more frequently, however, in an initial attempt to do so, I have come across a formatting snag that, I have found, can unfortunately not be remedied- at least, not at this present point.

The writing hiatus that came around during the latter part of 2016 seems to have ended, I think and, I sincerely hope with the greatest part of me. It was not an intended break.

A crisp and clear October evening.
