Wayne R. Leach's Profile:
I was born and raised in Maine, and spent most of my life in that great state. I have worked in many occupations, have several years of college education, though no degree. I began writing poetry in college c.1958. I had no intention of publishing any, but have been urged by friends to do so. My 4th book, Against the Tide, is now back from the publishers and is available from Goose River Press, 3400 Friendship Road, Waldoboro, ME 04572 and The Personal Book Shop, 144 Main St., Thomaston, ME 04861 (or by Email martibooksource@earthlink.com) and in Mr. Paperback, Elm Plaza, Waterville, ME. I participate in poetry readings locally, and enjoy them very much, accepting suggestions and criticism from others. A few of my poems have been published in small local periodicals and on the web. I have won a few insignificant contests and prizes. I live in the woods of Maine (150 acres) and enjoy walking them with my dog and cat, plus the other life I find there. I am not a hunter, fisherman type, however, simply enjoy the natural stuff. I enjoy reading many other poets. My favorites are Anne Sexton, Pablo Neruda, Pessoa, Walt Whitman and Adrienne Rich. I enjoy classical, country, R & B, old-time rock & roll, some pop music. My poems come almost entirely from my experiences, observations and journey through life. I hope you enjoy the poems as much as I have enjoyed the journey, though not always pleasant. I am active politically, also, having run for local town council and the State Legislature in Maine. My 1st three books are not available at this time. For a pic of me, you can find one at poetryinacup.com on their Poets' Pages. (It was emailed, don't have url to make it available here.)
