Welcome!

My photo
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.

"contemplations"

the complexity
of a ladybug
is far more intriguing
than the simplicity
of a jet plane.

     oyster shells in a dessert
          are far more beautiful
               than sand in a sea.

moon 
can
survive
tumultuus
blue
but
sun
dies
each
and
every
night
