About the Book

Poetry has always been in my being from my earliest memory. Even as a young child, I would climb into the highest branches and sway with the wind, suspended between the immense potential of a star-filled heaven and the banal motion of a finite earth below. Even then, my soul would sing in an unknown language, glorifying the majestic presence connected in every living thing. The first time a written poem inspired that part of me was a rhyme titled “Little Drops of Water” from a book collection read to me by my mother. I knew then my true calling in this life.

About the Author

I attended University of California Los Angeles and graduated with a degree in Creative Writing, only to learn the mechanics of writing often contrary to creative style, which runs a course not completely comprehended through academia. Not to say that academia unimportant. It serves as a regulator to a force of potential, but is not the definitive abstraction of the source. Poetry is a spiritual manifestation in natural context, channeled through flesh and blood experience. It is, and is not thought, as defined by reason. It emulates from multiple strings of invisible forces designed on a grand scale of elevation existing outside the clock work precision of space-time eventuality. This is why poetry reflects in the elemental present, while at the same instant elevates immutably transcendent. It is music of the spheres.
