About the Book

COPPER CARNATION is no ordinary book. It is a collection of poetry that excites, motivates and inspires the reader to be the best person he or she can be while helping society locate its very Heart. Whether you enjoy or are touched and moved by Poetry, Philosophy or Metaphysics, this Ribald Rocket will help you see verse in a completely new light. This is poetry that sings, dances and makes you come to terms with yourself. After all, the metaphors mingle, similes stun and alliteration arouses to the point where you realize that this is not your regular Pot of Poetry. This Prayer of a Path to yourself does not go through anyone else. Instead, it veers and careens towards love, romance, religion, psychology, spirituality and pornography. This collection covers the human experience in words that are alive, rich, substantive and true. If you want something light to read on the beach this Summer, this Bolt of Being is probably not for you. But if you want a piece of literature that you will keep going back to for guidance and wisdom, you are reading it. This COPPER CARNATION, then, is a Boulevard to Brilliance, a Jolt of Genius. Never leading you to purgatory or hell, but always keeping its eye on Heaven, Nirvana and Utopia, COPPER CARNATION Showcases a talented Wordsmith dissecting humanity for the better, while leading you away from self-destruction and towards a more blessed, sacred, holy and meaningful Conversation, Direction and Position. Do not believe the Negative Hysteria that Poetry is Dead. Instead, take into consideration the latest statistics that show the Written and Spoken Word to be making an unbelievably strong comeback to a place of deep admiration and respect among both readers and non-poetry lovers. Therefore, the plethora of poetry you get in this Collection will meet your every Aspiration and Need for Substantive Art and a Journey to the Soul. Enjoy with an Ounce of Pixie Dust!!
