My poems have helped me see things for years now. Looking back on my poems, written and now collected, I discover I see things anew, not only the remembered incidents (when that happens) but also the vision created in my mind by the poem itself. These poems, collected from parts of my life run past now, are glimpses that offer glimpses of what is seen and what that seeing seems to mean. I find the poems best serve me in becoming the creator of insights and perspective. The poems in this book have been giving that gift for me again.
