Arranged in eight sections, the thirty-eight poems in the author's second book of poetry encompass the variety of human experience, portraying people not only as explorers of places and particles, but also as seekers of truths and values and moral principles.

These are poems to be read silently and to be read aloud.
These are poems to be savored individually and to be shared
