Collected Poems 2021
About the Book
This collection records epiphanies, instances of poetry, moments of “extraordinary ordinary” insights that have happened to me in the course of living my life as usual over the past year —the events that occurred in it concentrated and highlighted even more by the Coronavirus pandemic. These are moments when the mind and spirit abstracts from everyday objects, situations and chains of events seminal and universal truths about our existence as sentient creatures evolved to awareness over the process of thirteen billion years — moments when we are dumbstruck with awe, or are startled into wonder, joy and compassion —moments when we see our breathless possibilities and our daunting limitations. I invite you to share them with me.
