In recent years, since retirement, I have been surprised to find myself writing some free verse. It was surprising, because I had been unable to write a poem when required in school. No inspiration, no poem. In this case, the inspiration occurred as I was looking at the beautiful light of the setting sun reflected off part of the house, and my mind reflected on the reasons for this scene and my sensations.

The "poetry" is rather peculiar. The focus is on meaning rather than rhyme or rhythm. And much of the inspiration is to communicate the complexities of the real world—inspired by the shallow explanations that fill popular culture.
