It’s K Shawn Edgar

A Bit About Me

A Sign of Life

Multimedia and video production — including writing, producing, camera work, and digital editing. Many years of experience in 35mm film and digital photography. I was also a freelance writer for five years through the Portland, Oregon based, Community Newspapers.

Specialties: Digital video editing, graphic design, and photography. My greatest love of all is the art of copyediting and its conjoined sibling, proofreading. The crafty examination of a document, novel, or poem is inthralling work.


You: A southerly seagull on slick red metal shopping cart in the parking lot at Target.
Me: A stalled blue metal Focus slotted between white life lines with my driver’s side window open to the westerly sunshine.

Sincerity of Thought, Deed, and Word

K. Shawn: How much longer for this Earth?

It is a question I like to think the first pair of curious eyes generated in the first curious mind as they peered at the dark sky above. How much longer before we tear each other apart? It’s legitimate inquiry. There’s the things we all need divided by the fear we all have that someone else’s need is greater than ours and will prove the stronger.

Pull yourselves up and walk about as was intended by the quick that grows your nails.

  1. Science shows how they act when approached by a scalpel.

    Religion prays that they don’t see it when you stick it in.

    Philosophy explains you had to cut them open (though you knew what was inside.)

    Poetry listens to what they might have said if they weren’t so busy making a mess.

    So you say you play no games? But you’re so much fun!


  2. Not that long if you ask me … someone has done the math absolutely wrong for this planet and this life, but it doesn’t matter, next time there might be someone smarter to make things better. Thanks for you visit! I like your way with words, I’m impressed actually.. will be visiting often 🙂

  4. Hello Mr. kshawnedgar!,

    forgive me for using comments on ‘about’ on your blog – I NEVER do, except for the people I would like to feature on the ‘Ten of the Best’ Blog. Please remove this from your comments after you’ve read it!

    The reason I write to you, is that we would be very honoured to carry your poem ‘RAMISI’ in July’s issue (our very first!) of “Ten of the Best” – short poetry.
    You can find the website here –

    Of course we need your permission to do so, and I hope you will give it to us.
    We have no regulations as far as copyright is concerned, all rights rest with you unconditionally.

    Also, we blog the entire Ten of the Best for the month under it’s own URL and as a grouping so that your poem will not appear with it’s own URL and will form far less than automated searches for duplicated work on the internet require – info for you if you are familiar with the way the internet works.

    This is so that appearing on Ten of the Best does not interfere in anyway how you chose to use the poem – beyond it appearing on your blog as it does.

    If you accept, we would like to know if you have a particular image you would like us to consider with your piece, if we can use what you already have (we will check for copyright issues ourselves so you are not held responsible), or if you’d prefer to see what we think your piece inspires! – with yours definitely, your image will work!

    Also, if you can write a VERY short bio – like 2 lines, in anyway that you want, with whatever information that you would like to give of yourself, for us to tag onto the end of the poem, we would be grateful – along with the website that you’d like readers to be directed to if you feel you would appreciate their direct traffic.

    We very much are of the opinion that your poem is clearly one of Ten of the Best we have seen this month.

    Please let us know as soon as you receive this – we have to be up in a couple of days!

    You can send the info to the submissions page of and we’ll delete as we use it.

    Sent this to the other site too so look out and delete from your comments.

    Hope you are keeping well mister, and onward



  5. Eeeks! Forgot! The folks I’m with and I, are asking if we can take out the last two lines…’Ramisi, your life will flourish the rebirth’ – and not invoke Ramisi’s curses!


  6. Hi KShawn, thanks for introducing yourself by following our site. We look forward to exploring yours further. If you’re a facebook user please visit the RAXA Collective page. We post complementary items on it. See you there!
