Monday was World Poetry Day. While I have written verses that I choose to call poetry, I would not call myself a poet. I still sat down and thought about my favorite poems of all time. As I chose these poems, I marveled at the diversity of my own tastes. The poems I chose are not from one category. Most are love poems. Some are poems of resistance. Some are inspirational. I think your tastes in art are a reflection of who you are. I hope you appreciate this impromptu catalogue of eclectic linguistic artistry… And this glimpse of my eclectic nature.

Until next time… look behind and beyond the veil…
