Michael was an avid reader as a teenager who only wrote when necessary. That was before he spent time with poetry. Poetry became his first creative writing love. They began dating in high school and she remains his longest running love affair. While the poems in this volume were written over a number of years the collection was compiled, edited and refined between February 2016 and June 2017. Mortal Thoughts arose from their romance.

As a wordsmith, I find myself limited
to express what I can in hopes of art.”
“Plain INsights” begins your word dining pleasure of savory and sweet sand pies in the Sandbox.
