Biography of Mark R Slaughter

I'm a biological scientist who took up poetry to challenge my written skills. I undertake commissions and collaborative projects - see my website Poem Crypt for more details; major commissions include 'Liquid Rooms' for orchestra and soprano by Karsten Fundal, and 'Death of Leaves', a song cycle for soprano and orchestra by Nicholas Anthony Ascioti. Further poems such as Marriage and Spring are featured on the 'Poets Pages' website. Updates

Great Oak

Ancient, yet steeped in wisdom;
Massive, yet enlightening;
Never tired of growing or vexed by seasons,
You stand glorious in summer;
Monumental in winter.

And as you overlook your forest
With sagacious governance,
They all defer to you - dependence in hand:

[Hata Bildir]
