The process of creating a poem is only partly conscious. Some poems come to the poet completely composed and only have to be written down. Others struggle to be born, a few have a long gestation period. But none have not surprised, as the poet sometimes feels only an observer to the leaps of logic in his poetry, he is nonetheless happy to catch these special grasshoppers. This collection of poems includes: Poems (for Connie) Poems walk about filling hands with paper folds. Poems argue without a sound with those that shout or converse with those without a voice of their own. Poems sail on boats fly on planes are held close to heart. Poems sleep in closets and jump out and sing when a door opens. Poems are rare because the cares of this world can stop their song. But poems will wait they have time to gather and prepare for the better world to come. And: Windborne The breaking light collected pieces of intimacy And ferried them from loves hesitant abode. Flung they were like so much dandelion gone to seed. Just as need of love became all encompassing And windborne hope of renewal became hard to gather again. And seventy-three others. Also by this poet: -Lasting Days-
