Exploring men's issues, masculine psychology, and recovery from abuse via poetry, essay, and art
Poetry is undervalued and underutilized as a means to move into the heart of our experience, especially for men.
Writing poetry has been a core element in my process of healing, growth, and transformational self-awareness for the past 25 years. This page provides a sample of my poetry in the form of PDF files. For information about PDF copies of my three books, click here.
