Thank you so much for stopping in. This is a personal blog dedicated to expressing my artistic interests. While it’s mainly poetry, you may stumble upon some random (incomplete) prose, photography, illustration, and a few digital art experiments.

It’s likely that you found this blog through some poetry-related means. When I started out in 2016, I was mainly focused on the mechanics of poetry, such as I understood them. While I still enjoy writing in that manner, I’ve adopted a more freestyle approach. Almost everything I write is stream-of-consciousness. Some interesting phrase catches my fancy and I just let it out. It’s very therapeutic as I think most poets would agree.

In any case, I sincerely hope you find something you connect with here.

The name of my blog was derived from this poem:

You are complete.
Replete with Stars.
No missing space,
No Puzzle Piece.
You, Tapestry.
You, Beautiful.
You, Rhapsody.
You are complete.
Do you feel need?
A need for Love?
Well, here’s the thing:
Love’s little feat,
Its Cosmic Way,
Chooses your Best,
Volume increased,
Played on Repeat.

  1. Really enjoying your space here. My work website (web designer) was just torn to shreds by an evil WordPress Theme company…but as I’m rebuilding you have inspired me to include a more personal and creative blog. Thanks.

    1. Great to hear you’re enjoying it, but I’m sorry about your site. I’m halfway into ‘remodeling” so things probably look rough.

Talk to me.
