An alphabetical list of my poems can be found at the bottom. What follows is a chronological list beginning with my most recent posts.

My first post on poems about friendship, including a free verse on what is lost as our individual stories pass from this world, and perhaps that is ok.

An except from Wendell Berry about finding complicated comfort, and a poem that shows my evangelical internal dialogue as a missionary.

A poem about watching a dancer in a pow-wow.

A love lost and found poem and an excerpt from a Wendell Berry poem about love and growth.

A personal essay which includes the poems "Long Day", "When Will I Rest", and "Fighting with Life".
