Growing up on the banks of the Chattahoochee River in rural southern Alabama, imagination was the key to childhood. Moving to Birmingham in the mid 1950's in the midst of the civil rights movement, with a father who was a fiery Nazarene minister, lead to a sheltered, strict upbringing with deep roots in religious beliefs and a deeper passion for an expressive outlet through the flow of words into poetry.
Starting when life was young and innocent and telling the stories of life past, you will laugh or cry as you are carried through emotions that are universal. You will travel through an array of numerous life experiences and feel the joys and heartbreaks along the way. This is a look at those experiences from many perspectives, touching the very roots from which each poem springs.
Like life that comes full circle with mortality, something we all face in our own way, this book concludes by addressing those feelings. It is poetry that is whimsical, emotional, sentimental, and at times thought-provoking, yet it is an inspiring read that will leave you yearning to return.
"Life is a fragile thing...As are its dreams...Yet the spectrum of mans existence can be encompassed fluently through poetry."
