There are no words
is all I can muster
his wife is deaf in grief
palms up, I reach out
Ribbons, 9:2, Fall 2013

Neal Whitman began to write general poetry in 2005, haiku in 2008, and tanka in 2011. He writes to be read and believes that the reader is never wrong. With his wife, Elaine, he combines his poetry with her Native American flute and photography in free public recitals with the aim of their hearts speaking to other hearts.
