Poetry Workshops  Educator  Open Mic Host Poet



Congratulations to Don! Don is our 2nd runner up in our 4th annual Los Angeles Poet Society Summer Poetry Contest with his poem, Joshua Tree Trip!






smiles in the car

two hours later arrive

petroglyphs on rocks


balance ourselves beside

boulders that dwarf us

we stroll hand-in-hand


past the many arms

of Joshua, single-fingered

Yucca, sit on stone “benches”


view Coachella Valley vista

Palm Springs tiny buildings

haze over Salton Sea


San Andreas Fault

pose with peaks

climb edges, bark


at the bluest sky

while nature’s personalities

show in formation


volcanic birthplace

rising and defeated limbs

perform poetry to space


Buddha-like mountains

silent sentinels patiently

outlast manmade windmills
