Really excited about my first book of poems. The eBook is now on Amazon, with the printed version not far behind. Could be available come Monday.
This collection of poems is about LOVE, LONGING, and LUST. Some are intended to make you feel warm inside while others to bring tears to your eyes. Some may make you laugh or bite your tongue in anger. Most of all, these poems are written to make you think about the word LOVE, that ubiquitous word that defies a precise definition. Clearly a human feeling, LOVE is BEAUTY to this author, if it meets a narrow criteria. There are no poems about love for a new puppy or love my new truck. What is included are poems that attempt to capture human drama and passion.
Many of the poems have one word titles. A challenge I gave myself. Think of a word and write a poem that somehow relates to that word. This was a different challenge that what I attempt to do with my blog. That is to take a work of art and use it as a backdrop for a poem.
