    'The poet in me knows a very simple truth, to know what I am going to write, I must begin writing, the words are not within me; the words are within the universe and I am their voice, I can sometimes write an entire poem, start to finish word perfect, without knowing what I am writing; most of my poems are not chosen topics, a moment a point in time that could be fixed measured arrives, it could be any time day or night, anytime free time relatively relaxed; and thus normally daily I will write, rarely with a plan as to what how I will write, I will write because I need to write; as rain needs to fall, as rivers need to flow, as flowers need to grow, I write as I breathe thus not to write is not to breathe.'
