We are all poets; each of us writing a poem we call our life. The 45 poems in this volume are poems of the heart and speak of joy and pain, anger and love. They bring insights into how life can be understood more profoundly , lived more intensely and into what it means to be human and alive.
We are all poets; each of us is writing a poem we call a life. Poets who write in words are different only in that they take time out to share with others the shifts in awareness that occur as we pay deep attention to our ongoing experience and struggle to wrest new meaning and wisdom from the chaos of everyday life. Reading poems can create similar shifts of awareness, bringing insights into how life can be understood more profoundly and lived more intensely. The poems in this volume are poems of the heart, speaking of joy and pain, anger and love, of what it means to be human and alive.
