Welcome to the home of the jorio, a verse form I created. It’s a very simple concept, which I’ll explain.
A jorio is 4 lines, with each line 4 words. As I’ve described it before: poetic cubism…
The idea behind the jorio, is that I’ve always had the feeling that people felt that poetry was long and complicated. I wanted to show that it did not necessarily needed to be so.

Wow, almost a year since I last updated this profile! Things have certainly been busy, but it's been longer than I thought. Much has happened - most importantly: I've graduated! This has certainly kept me busy and away from writing. I've also made a few more trips, to Canada, Tunesia, London, Vietnam and Cambodia (you see, I keep myself busy...). I've also studied Arabic language and culture for 5 months, which was very interesting.
On the poetry front, some new joria have appeared. I'm hoping to be more in a writing mood the coming weeks, so hopefully you can expect some more output. I've also posted a small collection of pieces of prose I've written over the years. Now, I'm also hoping to finally be able to review some of you back - something I'm still hopeless at...
Thanks, as always, to all readers and casual visitors. With regards,
