About the Book

This book of poetry spans forty plus years of the author’s lifetime and presents a number of different subjects from alternative points of view. Subjects range from Christ’s Via Dolorosa and death, to spawning salmon, to domestic dispute, to love poems. Intended as a book to sample from time to time, not as a one-time read.
