When I am quiet, poems find me. My hope in sharing my writing is that a quiet moment will find you when you read my work. I believe these poems and these moments have the power to change us if we are open to them. Being open to a poem means I am open to the small miracles of everyday life, and my job as a poet is to combine words in a fresh way that illuminates those small miracles so you can see them too.
