Every day,
painting less than
I am known for,
calling to a vibrant canvas -
the task of health availing
the task of losing myself
becomes more
rather than
complete beginnings

I have an Associate in Arts degree from the College of Dupage in Glen Ellyn, IL.  My poetry has appeared in The Awakenings Review, Prairie Light Review, and Plainsongs (Hastings College).  I have been with Awakenings since the beginning when my artwork was healing me and continues to do so.  You can see more of my writing at Ben's Blogspot:
