I wrote poetry at various times in my life as a way of expressing ideas and feelings that I otherwise found very difficult to express. I am confident in my ability to write bad poetry. I have little exposure to poetry writing education, but feel that as an advantage as I am free to write without being overly concerned with aspects such as rhyming schemes and the counting of syllables and lines.


If you the reader find any meaning or value in what I have written I would be delighted to get your feedback at ileshanti@ileshanti.com. Also if you write poetry or short-stories you are welcome to submit them for web-publication to guestsubmissions@ileshanti.com.


Thank you
