Alfred Colo, a former singer-songwriter, has immersed himself in full-blown poetry from creative love lyrics he honed his craft on when he realized that his passion for words lay beyond mere expressions of amour.
His initial attempt at self-publishing with Xlibris Corporation in 2008 is a nature-lover’s view in poetry through the four seasons entitled Inside Looking Out. Reluctant at first, not offering too much material at once for reasons both pragmatic and artistic, he later ventured to expand his theme with residual material not included in his first book on four seasons alone.
As his appetite grew, he knew that there was more he had to say in his accumulated poetry since 1984, which begged inclusion of more poems on the related twelve months of a year beyond the four seasons.
After years of creative writing, learning and perfecting his art, he felt it was worthy enough and the right time to make public what eventually has become this collection.
He trusts that his reading followers will concur that it was indeed worth the effort to have written a “companion book” to its predecessor, Inside Looking Out.
Alfred lives in New Fairfield, Connecticut, after compelling circumstances led him here to exit the Big Apple. Including this one, he has authored twelve books pictured with others to follow.
An active octogenarian, Alfred pursues his prolific outpourings on a variety of subjects at a still-going-like-sixty white-heat rate.
See if you can keep pace with a poet determined to make a mark and to leave a legacy to be proud of.
He captures the spirit of his works by suggesting wholly or in part what the cover design will look like on both front and back.
