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.

"a problem"

i caught a glimpse
of buddha
and the christ
sharing a bottle
of plum wine
at a corner table
in nick’s
on the corner of
5th and main.
they were laughing,
refilling each
other’s glasses
with the sweet honey
of truth.
some shook their heads
in disgust
at the spectacle,
but most
simply ignored them
letting the walls crumble
at our feet.
