Reflections on the world captured in poetry, writing, photograpy, and philosophy
My goal is to post a poem a day every day through 2021. Along with the poems I’ll periodically post short stories, photos I’ve taken, and thoughts I may have. I hope that my writing inspires others to their own creativity.

Trying to ignite the night
In a competition with the stars
