About James Phoenix

Poetry is serious fun. Dictionaries are colorful palettes in black and white.

I've been writing poetry since my mid-teens. It has been a road of discovery of what's inside and out in a cauldron of wordplay.

Poetry is this process of discovery and expression. I am discovering is that truth is sacred and reality is divine. Truth is experienced in a still mind; art is the expression of that experience, an attempt to share with others and oneself.

I am a booster for the practice of meditation. I invite you to visit my website, Tame The Wind. Click here.

I am a Program Officer with the Fenwick Foundation.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master of Arts degree in English Literature from Hunter College of the City University of New York.
