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.

"alone and..."

in the stillness
there interposed
a fly
on the wall
opposite my bed;
a wall empty
and white
screaming of
nothingness
and i imagine
myself
broken & bent
in his eyes
a multitude
in that void
wandering
in the vacant
silence
that is that fly
twitching
with exhaustion
wanting nothing more
than sleep...

Good poem. I want that wraning sign myself. I think that would be needed for my blog. I'm sorry for me English. I'm from Finland but I currently reside in Stockholm. anyway I really enjoy your work man. Its heavy and I mean that in a good way.
I sorry I don't give you very good critical feedback. I think I am a better diver than a writer but I do my best.
