As I draw ever closer to life’s inevitable conclusion, I offer this collection of poems written over several decades as an expression of wonder and gratitude for the beauty, mystery, and yes, sometimes horror of this life.

From the time I was a child on my mother's lap until today as the relentless aging process continues, I have drawn a deep satisfaction from literature, and especially from reading, writing, and sharing poems. Enjoy!
