Tom Atkins is one of those creative people who do so many different things. He writes prose along with poetry, is a painter, photographer and a pastor.
You can see his photography every day on his blog Quarry House, as well as read at least a poem a day, sometimes two.
Tom brings us into his life through his poetry. Often making the turn from the ordinary to the profound and universal. And they are inclusive, it’s easy for me to find a part of myself in Tom’s poetry.
