This is a book of verse in a long line of lyric poetry. Unlike most contemporary writers, the author has written verse which actually rhymes. In this volume, the reader will discover that no subject is inappropriate for poetry. Themes here include faith, doubt, love, humor, war, sexuality, and death.
This book presents ideas which invite the reader to experience, with the poet, a vast range of emotional reality, from doubting dogmas of faith to the painful reality of returning home from senseless war, with all its accompanying trauma.
Poetry deals with the great mysteries of life, and with words tries to engage those realities, make sense of them, and move on in triumphal living. Poetry recognizes its limitations, but affirms that it is a gift from God to help one organize, understand, and find peace in a world that is both a vale of tears and a foretaste of beatitude.
