I am a Canadian amateur artist and poet who discovered writing later in life after a lifetime fascination with English words and their history. From creating crossword puzzles as a child, playing Scrabble as an adult, as well as learning foreign languages, I never seem to be far from the assembly of a group of words. I tend to use creative writing as an outlet from the mundane aspects of my vocation which is rife with technical writing. Many of the poetry subjects I write about are historical in nature and were written with enough information and clues for the reader to discover what the piece is about. I often try to bury hidden meanings or extra themes within the prose including the occasional visitation by a line of alliteration. Other poem subjects are inspired by events that have been encountered in my life or have been derived out of the requests made by others.
