Life is so precious yet unpredictable. No matter what education or background we come from, none of us knows how our lives will evolve. I never thought I would write poetry, but at fifty-five, I became a poet.
The wisdom acquired through my life’s experiences forms the prelude for my interest in writing these poems that reflect my life as the son of a priest, a Christian, a father, a husband, and a practicing lawyer. Some of my musings are inspired by being raised in a large and colorful Greek-American family. My observations about people, religion, nature, the world, love, and life are reflected in my writings.
No matter who we are, we are shaped by our parents, our environment, our culture, and our upbringing. We all want the same comforts in life; and we all show our weaknesses and strengths through our passions, prejudices, and talents. I hope one or more of these poems speaks to you in some small way.
