An anthology of the author's most compelling poems written to date, containing descriptive, philosophical and spiritual works from three collections. It includes a brief commentary on each poem including the autobiographical context in which they were originally written.
A collection of 86 poems that document the life of the poet from youth to middle age through a series of defining experiences. The result is a long personal record of a life lived vividly, always deeply engaged with the world around him, from the stars in the heavens to the numerous characters who people the poems. These poems are like memoirs soaked in perspiration, angst and, ultimately joy.
