                              Don't be Held Hostage By Regret

Don't be held hostage by regret.
This world is not to blame
as much as it is you
that what you have done, you must forget.

Regret is a hindrance to progress,
a dangerous infection of the soul
which neither goes forward nor back,
remains static like a mountain kissing the sky.

The poet is capable of wonderfully sensuous imagery and prosody...

                                 Blueink Review

His imagery and unusual line rhythms create an experience that will delight some and frustrate others. Still, his tendency to set poems in interior, emotional landscapes, and literal, geographical ones keeps things lively.
