A few years ago I started to record myself reading some of my poems but also poetry by greater people than me. I moved away from this idea when I ran into computer problems and then forgot about these little videos until I revived my account at Youtube a few weeks ago.

This video is of my Haiku, written and performed long before I made it the introductory poem in my newly published poetry collection Remembering Blue (Ward Wood Publishing).
