proud. He may hit
a walk-off home run

Michael Escoubas began writing poetry for publication in August of 2013. Early in life his mother said, “You have a gift for words; I hope you do something with that gift.” Michael writes poetry, in part, because of his mother’s encouraging words and because he believes poetry brings people together. Michael has published one chapbook, Light Comes Softly, which is available by contacting the author.
