Garden Gallery Lobby
To the unsuspecting visitor looking for gardening sites, or information about gardening, I am sorry, but this site is a garden, or about gardening, only in a metaphorical sense.
This site is a display of my art, poetry, prose, and web design skills, in the theme of things that can be found in a garden, like plants, flowers, butterflies, and such, but also for things that need care and maintenance to grow, or keep alive, like friendship and love. And yes, some content, here and there, may stretch even this metaphorical context of gardening.
The overall theme of this site is things that grow in a maintained environment, and the natural inclusions that always find their way into any maintained setting, like butterflies in a garden, but this site is not specific to a garden in a literal sense.
A side note, I do like to grow house plants, but I do not do outside gardening, other than a few balcony plants. For those visitors that are disappointed at not finding real gardening content here, I will strive to post more art related to literal gardening in the future.
What you will find on the following pages are samples of my digital art, with optional additional notes and images pages, and optional poem pages. If you skip the optional pages, you will still find flowers, butterflies, and other things to look at.
About my poems, it may be that not all poems on the poem pages are true poems. Instead, some of the poems may be ultra-condensed prose, or essays, presented in a poem layout and style.
Warning: Due to the nature of some poems displayed within these pages, I recommend that parents of younger children read my poems and then decide if their children should be allowed to read them.
The poem pages reflect moments of my past that do not always accurately reflect my present stage of development. Life is a lesson, and I have failed many of its tests, but I have also learned from my mistakes as I moved forward it time and matured with age.
