Profile Born into an itinerant family I have spent most of six decades on the run from the bosom of the home fires. Married late in life to the vagabond daughter of a New England schoolmarm my heels have begun to cool to life on the road. I am retired. My poetry is informed and driven by experience of the small moment within the vastness of space. Most recent work can be found in The Linnet’s Wings summer edition. More of my work can be found at poetryontherun.com.
