Biography of Richard Lackman
I have worked for the past 30 years as an orthopaedic cancer surgeon and find that reading and writing poety in a good release and a good way to relax. I most enjoy poems with set rhythm and rhyme although I like a lot of free verse as well.

As I look out upon October leaves
And brown grass weathered by the Autumn sun
I see the shafts of light a bare branch cleaves
And so much of creation now undone
I feel the sorrow of a world defeated
And wonder if my life reflects the same
Cycle of life's consciousness depleted
Like a picture that has fallen from its frame
