Follow Hugh Starkey’s strong poetic voice, letting him lead you through a “wandering mind” and into a rare terrain of poetry.

Starkey has captured a full spectrum of life’s experience and emotion in this new collection, ranging from tender tributes such as “On a Winter Night, Long Ago” and the poignant opening poem, “My Friend is Gone.” He has also become a true son of the Southwest, as evidenced in “Storm” and “Dance of the Stars,” pieces that evoke the drama and power of place.

Although only one work is actually titled “Haiku,” many of his verses have captured the elegance and economy unique to that particular poetic form. Readers will delight in the intensity of “Beyond Time” as well as the whimsical “Ode to Chocolate.”

For poetry lovers and poets alike, this small volume will enchant with its tenderness, power, and diversity.

At times reflective, moving, and even whimsical. A nice collection of verse.
