I never wrote poetry until August 2014. That was the month and year Edge of Humanity Magazine first published on the internet. Since August 2014, I have written over 1000 poems.
I never in my life had an interest in writing. I was too busy making a living and having fun. I’m also a Gemini and have unlimited curiosity about the world so my time is always stretched in different directions.
The missus and I still try to put crumbs on the table and have fun, but for the last several years I have also become a poet. My poetry is based loosely on my 58 years of life experiences.
I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for reading and all the support.
The Hermit Poet
Poem 1 of 3
Originally published May 8, 2016
Put it on the bain marie
May not eat for another century
Spent winter in Romania
Hung out with vampires from Transylvania
Full blood transfusions made me live forever
But much crazier
Worked my way over to India
Met a snake charmer who was even zanier
He gave me a worn copy of the Tao Te Ching
Went home to Miami
Every day for one month
Sitting on the beach
Reading all 81 chapters of writing by Lao Tzu
No more luxuries for me
Decided to pawn off all of my bling
To this day for no reason
When drinking coconut water
Start to sing
The Star Spangled Banner
Oh say can you see
Numerous shrinks unable to help me
Bought old wood sailboat
Went off to sea
Made landfall here in Tahiti
Really enjoy your company
Please pour me some more tea
