This site is dedicated to the written work of author David Mahood.  From books to poems to thoughtful musings, it is a reflection of the sentiments of a curious mind.

"I write to offer a voice to wandering minds that can’t stop dreaming, can’t stop emoting, and can’t be quiet."

 



Last night's orange sunset,
a turn of nature,
spotlighting our differences.
Tomorrow, Route 88
will take us in three directions:
To parents, wives and lovers.

Unfortunately, writing has become a specialized art but what is even more lamentable is that we have readily accepted it.
