Poems collected over the past 45 years under the themes of War and Remembrance, Autumn, Music, Painting, Places, People, Pain, Occasional, Seasons, Things, Good Friday and Easter, Christmas, Spiritual Gaze poems. They explore fragements of perception in the understanding of ordinary things as part of a spiritual gaze, or way of looking. Sometimes they interpret ordinary things as metaphors in the possibility of a greater narrative. They use words to find, indentify and shape meaning in the connections between words and their potrayal of things, events and experiences. They are written in the belief that connections can be made between what is on the outside and the inside of human experience. This connection will be personal in its interpretation but hopefully offers something that glimpses an inclusive experience of the human condition.
