When did you first start writing poetry? Do you remember what provided your first inspiration?
I think I wrote my first poem when I was 11 or 12.  My mother had read stories and poems to me on a regular basis when I was a young child, so I had those images and rhythms in my head.  I gave the poem to my dad, and he framed it and put it on his desk.  I've been writing ever since.

What inspires you to write poetry now?
Reading good poetry.  Observing
