Wikipedia states: The term brandy is a shortening of brandywine, which was derived from the Dutch word brandewijn, itself derived from gebrande wijn, which literally means “burned wine”.

The name for my blog was inspired by someone who described my poems as if they were like warmed wine.

I sometimes write in haiku, but most of my poems are in freestyle. My freestyle. I have been told that my writings take on a rhythmic flow that I can only attribute to my love of music and lyrics, especially influenced by decades of listening to Rush.

I write what seizes me, most of which is in verse. I am inspired by the beauty and the ugliness I find around me. I do not get to choose what may take hold and cause the words to “percolate”. I only know I must let them out.

Feel to reach out to me from my contact page if the mood ever strikes you.
