Member Bio:

Bob Brussack has retired after a career teaching law at the University of Georgia in Athens in America. He divides his time now between Athens and the south coast of Ireland, where he resides at the moment. He's written all his life, mostly in law and politics, but has turned more recently to poetry and has decided to submit regularly to the poetry journals. His interests also include travel, photography, and jazz.

Writing sample

An Irish Walk

You would find them
If they were there,
Beneath the lip of the quay
Or amongst some moss
That’s found a footing in the stone
Or in the damp crevices
Where mortar was.

The Truths, I mean.
The Reasons.
Some assurance.
Something.

Even so,
There’s a fine spring chill
Carried on the breeze,
And the muted cheer
Of morning gray,
And voices
Lilting over the water
And down the lanes.
​And that’s enough for now.

Current project

At the moment, I'm simply trying to develop a routine of drafting, editing, and submitting poetry, setting aside a few hours each morning for the work. It's been gratifying, notwithstanding the steep learning curve and the difficulty of finding good homes for the pieces.
