    Chiefly Close to Home

    Although I'm often inspired by the interplay of sound and thought, I also write about my own experiences and try to put into words memories that will resonate with others. In these poems, I want people to say, "Yes, I remember that feeling."

    I also think a little humor can open them to thoughts that they may not have had otherwise. So here the poem opens with a little humor, two puns in four words. Then it becomes slightly nostalgic, remembering summer as a child, and how fast it goes, and how baseball games ands swimming can remind us of that time. There's all that in just three little lines.
