My first published poem

My motto – Stay Adventurous.

Well, I must remain true to it. And no, it doesn’t always mean global galavanting. Stay Adventurous means taking a step outside your comfort zone. An adventurous step.

So, since April is ‘National Poetry Month,’ I decided to publish a poem. Yes, I do dabble with poetry on occasion.

Ok, so here goes, a short poem first drafted on a rooftop bar in New York City.


Steels rises, made by man
touches the clouds

Since her, few reach taller;
None mean more
She dominates, an Empire.

Her smaller sister speaks, too
Both miss twin cousins
Towering freedom awaits

Alas, she points upward,
And illuminates her message







Stay Adventurous, Craig

    I like it!! I like the multiple meanings. …but it also just makes me all the more eager to move to NYC. Its architecture is one of the things I enjoy most.

    It feels funny to say I like your poem. Don’t get me wrong, I do, but I always feel funny judging someone’s creative product. I can say with confidence that I love the fact that you stay adventurous, and saw the opportunity to publish a poem as a step along that path.

    I love poetry. Have published a few poems and ran the NYU poetry club for three years. It’s such personal work. Thank you for sharing and cheers on putting it out here. Hope to read more of your work sometime,
