The poem that taught me to love

The machinery of the universe

is humming –

The night sky hints


That is the first poem I wrote. I was a teenager. It popped into my head as I was lying in bed, at night, staring up at the ceiling. I owe a lot to that poem.

It was that poem that taught me to love. That poem has filled me with inspiration everyday since. And it contains the gift that I most want to share with my son as he grows.
