Robert Paul Allen has been writing poetry for the past 5 years. He has worked as a cardiologist and then a medical director for many years. After he retired he needed to do more than travel and he decided to allow his right brain a chance and started to write poetry. Because of his background and where he lives, his experiences in medicine and his personal experiences raising a family play prominently in his work. As of this year he will have published over a dozen poems and is considering a chapbook as a next step. He enjoys writing, especially when it is worthwhile for others to read and think about. His best poetry stems from the emotions and vicissitudes of his life experience, when he is fully invested in what he is writing.
