About the Book

This book is an assembly of poems (word images) and pictures (visual images) used to illustrate the poems. So, I called it Images of Life.

My poetry is an attempt to express my worldview. First, of my life with Jesus Christ and what I think about society. Then, my experiences and my thoughts and perceptions of those experiences. I think beliefs make us who and what we are, and that our perception of our experience has as great an influence on us as the actual experience itself—perhaps greater. 

I have always been a visual person. I love taking pictures. I enjoy the art and science of photography.  In this book I tried to create something that appeals to one’s eye and mind. I wanted to write something thought provoking—something that would have meaning.

My hope is that God will be glorified and that people will read and enjoy this book as much I enjoyed creating it.  So, to those who will read this book, I express my hope that you enjoy it and that you gain from reading my book.

About the Author

I am Michael D. Fritz.  I was born and spent my childhood in Phoenix, Arizona. Afterward, I served in the Army for twenty years and retired from the Army. After retiring from the Army, I studied at the University of Minnesota where I earned a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree. So, I traveled a bit. I lived through experiences both pleasant and miserable; and I think we all have that in common.


I have been a Christian for quite a few years. God has blessed me greatly. I love the United States. I am glad that I was able to serve this country in the Army as long as I did.


I enjoyed photography and writing most of my life. I spent a lot of time thinking about what life is all about.  I wrote down a lot of those thoughts. Finally, I decided to compile some of my poems and some of the pictures I took throughout my life in this book, which I titled The Images of Life.
