Words are exciting to me. Like jigsaw pieces, when properly arranged, they become a beautiful story picture of communication that can plant love in a heart, tears in the eyes, and laughter on a sad face. Words are powerful. They direct the floundering, reform the sinner, and teach scholars. Words have the ability to concoct stories, document facts, comfort another, sign a peace treaty, compose a love letter, affirm a birth or a death. Words preserve visual and hidden meanings to be discovered by the reader. Because of my fascination with words I express my interpretations over two hundred ways in my poems that comprise this book. I want my words [poems] to live on for others to enjoy, love, hate or whatever.
