Welcome To Richard Doiron's Spirits In Peace Home

Richard Doiron's BiographyMy three main poetry themes are: love poems, spiritual poems, and poems on peace. I am a prolific writer and my inspirations are diverse, while I write and adapt to most forms with relative ease.

I am a human rights advocate, someone who believes we are all equals and that peace can only achieved through dialogue and a justice-based orientation. Holding the firm belief that we can all make a difference, I offer my original poetry, much of it exclusive to this site, to those willing to share my dream and vision.

"I have always been a nature lover. As such I have lived in the woods for much of my life. While in the city today, I still own the property which I single-handedly built. My initial goal was to have a room in that massive structure called "The Rainbow Room." I had no idea what that vision was about, until a Sioux Indian named Ed Magaa explained it in his book "Rainbow Tribe." I was asked to write this story, while still living "off the land." I may have lived as many as twenty years in the woods, without power or telephone. On a recent sixteen-day visit to my camp I composed an unprecedented 385 poems."

Poetry Life and Times
Poet News July 04

Sara Russell did an online interview with me in the summer of 2004 for Poetry Life & Times, based out of the United Kingdom. A poet of distinction, a publisher par excellence, Sara's interview of me was a high point in my poetic life. In this interview I was allowed to speak freely on my poetry and on the way I generally viewed the world. I will be forever indebted to Sara Russell for her generosity. Sara recently retired from Poetry Life & Times and will be sorely missed by all.
