Brevity - A Collection Of Poems
“Saying as much as possible in as few words as possible.” From the Latin word “BREVIS”, meaning brief. The inspiration for the title of this collection of poetry, has been influenced by the observation that a lot more poets are using this style of writing to express powerful messages. I call them “power punch” writes. It is a liberating way of expressing creativity through fleeting thoughts and words.My sincere appreciation, as always, goes to Vijay Vaghela, for his encouragement, professional formatting and artwork. My poetry collections would not be possible without his expertise and dedication.
During the production of this volume, I hosted “brevity” contests on the poetry site www.allpoetry.com. The finalists have agreed to allow me to feature their poems in this collection. Copyrights have been noted under their contributions. The following are collaborations with poets I admire, and who continue to inspire me with their excellent writing skills:

‘Skyscraper Skies and Tearing Eyes’

My family continue to support me with their encouragement. I give Glory to God for His unconditional love and gifting me with a passion to write.

About the Author
Reading and writing poetry are my life passions. I enjoy contemporary reads, and lean toward the abstract in my own writing. I have published 17 collections of poetry, and now busy working on my 18th. Besides these one biography and then this book. I have a number of books published at some of the well-known online retail sites that publish print books and e-books. Presently I am in the process of publishing e-book versions of existing books as well as new ones, in various formats, as required by different publishing, marketing and distributors of e-books. Besides the above, I also write poems and interact with a number of authors on various poetry sites.
