Silence — the only language I am fluent in.


A Zen poet and contemplative, I subsist primarily on patronage, donations and the support of students.

Join my community of patrons and gain access to behind the scenes updates and hidden works, including poems, notes, written and audio contemplations.

Discover Small Silences, learning how my poetry arises, and how to bring that to your own.

Enter the Poetry Dōjō, a gathering of fellows and readers practicing the Way of Poetry.

Please consider supporting my life’s work of writing, teaching and spiritual companionship with a donation.

Join me in a conversation of silence and words, on the Encountering Silence podcast.
