Withering Cedars, Georgia, United States
My name is Tim Morris. I currently dwell in Northwest Georgia on my estate, Withering Cedars, nestled at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, with my lovely wife and two beautiful daughters, where I teach high school American literature. I have been writing poetry for the majority of my life. I write about what I see around me. When asked, I describe my style as "realist romantic surrealism". The environment, sex, jazz, religion, politics, family, etc., are the subjects on which I tend to focus. When I am not writing, I play the banjo, didgeridoo, or drums or wander aimlessly shooting odd objects with my camera.

“curb-side buddha” - a true story. well...sort of.

“curb-side buddha”

old naked man
sitting quietly

among fallen leaves
beside the road,

i like your purple

worn with confidence
and pride,

tilted ever so slightly
to the left,

its shadow
a minute blemish

on your buddha belly
glowing mighty

and white
in this october sky.

you are pu-tai
of the winding road

and i’ll pour a glass
for you this evening

as i drink with the moon
and sing the coyote’s song.
