This is a book of 80 poems inspired by my life and by the lives of my friends and acquaintances as well as by nature and by my animal companions. These poems are presented in a variety of styles and forms and are meant to give pleasure and to entertain. If they make the reader smile, reflect and remember some nostalgic events from their own life, I will have achieved my goal.
My eighty poems reflect my thoughts and impressions of nature, relationships with both people and animals and feelings of love. There are some that humorously portray conflicts and disappointments, the "inevitables" of life, but in a gentle way. They are meant to entertain and are actually quite straightforward reads. I found inspiration in my own life and loves as well as from the lives of my friends and acquaintances. If they make the reader smile, reflect and pause to remember some nostalgic events from their own lives, I will have achieved my goal.
