poems as hand- and foot-holds on a glass mountain


Where to start……..I was born in a desert, I was raised in a lion’s den…..no, that was somebody else……

Well, now I’m a retired healthcare worker living not far enough from Seattle with my wife who teaches piano while I write poems. I’m Don Brandis. I’ve published poems in various poetry journals, and a volume of my poems is pending publication with Unsolicited Press in Portland in April 2021. Called Paper Birds.   See   https://www.unsolicitedpress.com
