This book is a collection of poems selected from 40 years of writing. The science of poetry is to translate the intangible thinking of the right brain into a familiar left brain world of matter. No attempt has been made to order the poems, either alphabetically or chronologically or by themes, in the hope that each poem will come as a surprise and maintain interest. There are a number of poems on the subject of language throughout the book. To understand some of them, it may be necessary to have an awareness of the thought behind them. The author is passionately interested in how the presence of language influences the process of thought. Did, for instance, early societies before language, see their world as one? Does the existence of over a million words, a million labels, in our contemporary world, tend to make us think fractionally? These poems are the tangibles of philosophies that have entered my mind over the past 92 years, and the many issues that all lives have to deal with. They are namely...an autobiography of thought.
