The poems in the author’s second volume continue his love of simplicity and the beauties of nature. His world travels have enlarged his mental library of poetic styles and influences. Many of these poems resulted from an interest in ancient Chinese poets, such as Li Po and Du Fu, and reflect the submergence or abnegation of self. Hence, nature becomes the subject, not the poet’s emotional reaction to it.

A second theme is close examination of what many would treat as casual observation and simply disregard. But these mind-grabbing eye-stoppers offer rich imagery and opportunities for thoughtful word play in the author’s world.

While most of these poems are short, the author can also spin a tale with longer poems from his own experiences or from the imagination spurred from actual observation.

Storytelling, observation, and nature—all in simple, earnest language.
