About Nightpoet

Welcome to Nightpoetry! I am an American poet, archaeologist, photographer and musician who has worked and lived in Europe for more than 30 years. I attended university in the United States taking a B.A. degree with a major in English Literature and Creative Writing. My interests are many and varied, ranging from scientific studies, literature, poetry, music, art, archaeology and astronomy to traveling and immersing myself in European culture. In my spare time I have performed in many bands through the years, lots of blues, jazz and rock and presently I am the lead singer in a Doors tribute band called The Changeling and am the co-founder of the jazz-poetry group called NIGHTPOETS that is currently hibernating. On this blog you will find a potpourri of my poetry, prose, photography, archaeological endeavours, musical undertakings, perspectives, thoughts, insights and a smattering of liberal politics. Thanks for stopping by....

Leaving trails of flame;

Who’ll help me up again?
