About This New Book

(from my Goodreads page)

My most rounded new collection of poetry, encompassing poetry and images through three decades.

Light commentary for each poem, and links from most of them to other information about the topic in the poem, add breadth.

Over one third of the poems have an image attached to enhance the meaning.

Inspiration is such a personal, yet universal, experience.

That creates incredible opportunity to share, at the same time the tremendous challenge of linking from and to our individual nuances is most acute.

And how does one separate a swell of inspiration from that of love?

I don’t think by any clear separation. 🙂

From the moment of our first breath, our first screech of sound, and the comfort from a gentle soul waiting for us here on this earth, we experience the need and satisfaction of inspiration.

Best wishes to all,

About Me


My Note : Other than the first link (my own post) these are suggestions from WordPress I’ve checked out.  There’s an amazing amount of both variety, and inspiration in these works.  Some are shorter, some longer, and one is a video spoken poem.  All worth taking a peek at. 🙂  Thanks everyone.
