About the Book

The Courage of Flowers is an anthology of poems reflecting the human experience from the perspective of an author who has at various times been a monk, a teacher, and a husband. They range from the sublime, to the ordinary, to the absurd. The author hopes that readers will recognize in them their own humanity and complexity and alternately feel exhilaration, amusement, and compassion.
