‘Seasons of the Heart’ is a book about the joys and pain of life, the poetry of life. We will face many experiences in our lifetime that will at times resemble seasons. Some will bring us great joy like the warmth of spring and summer. Others will settle in like autumn and bring a sense of fulfillment. When winter comes, and it will, our heart will break. But we will endure, we must.
Writing the poems in this book has helped me make sense of a difficult childhood, share my feelings about love, marriage, family, loss, faith and hope. The poems in this book are the poetry of my life. This book gives a brief glimpse into my life, into the seasons of my heart. It is not all inclusive but merely a snapshot. I want to share a small part of who I am with you.
