About the Book

I believe that true inspiration for art comes once in a great while, often when we least expect it. So it is true for most of the poems contained in this book.

Most of the poems here in this volume tell descriptive stories, such that I call them mini-epic poems. They have a beginning and a promising end. 'Goddess of Fire and Ice' and 'Death of a Poet' are examples, not to mention my two favorites.

'A Journey' is the very first one presented in this book. It is a great mini-epic poem with many poetic metaphors and gives the reader a visual description of how difficult the voyage on the Sea of True Love actually is.

My favorite poem, however, is the poem entitled, 'One More Day', mostly because I wrote this poem in anticipation of a wonderful day with someone special. It is short. It is descriptive. And every word jumps off the page in excitement to the promise of a beautiful tomorrow.

All of the poems are romantic, though, and I hope they elicit the same feelings from you, the reader, than they did for me when I wrote them.
