TTHE FIFTY POEMS IN THIS COLLECTION ARE FILLED WITH SHARP IMAGERY.SOME OF THE WORKS DEAL WITH THE PLIGHT OF THE POOR - THE HARDSHIPS THEY EXPERINCE IN EVERYDAY LIVING AND THEIR INABILITY TO CHANGE THEIR CIRCUMSTANCE. THE POET HIMSELF IDENTIFIES WITH THEM AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE FOLLOWING QUOTE FROM HIS POEM "HOW SHALL THE PEOPLE SURVIVE?" COSMIC CADENCES -PG-70. (QUOTE) "HOW SHALL THE PEOPLE SURVIVE? HOW SHALL THEY BE FED?..... I SHARE THE FEELINGS OF THE BEGGAN AND THE POOR WHO CANNOT FIGHT THIS UNFAIR LIFE, THAT SUCKS THE BLOOD AND TEARS THE FLESH AND BREAKS THE BONES TO DUST! HOW SHALL THE PEOPLE SURVIVE SUCH DEEP CHASMS OF HOPELESSNESS? SOME POEMS SHOW THE HELPLESS FEELING CAUSED BY THE LOSS OF LOVED ONES WHO WERE CALLED TO THE GREAT BEYOND. (QUOTE) FROM POEM "STING OF DEATH"COSMIC CADENCES, PG- 78. UNFAILING STING OF DEATH RULER OF PASSION AND WHIM MEN MUST OBEY YOU WHEN YOU HAVE SETTLED UNTO THE ONES THEY LOVE. THEY MUST SURRENDER YOU HAVE DESCENDED!... THERE IS NO EXIT! NO...NOT A PERSON CAN EVER ESCAPE THIS FATE!... THE LANGUAGE IS SIMPLE YET POETIC AND IT DEMONSTRATES THAT MR. WINTER WRITES FROM INSPIRATION. (QUOTE) FROM POEM "MOTIONLESS" COSMIC CADENCES - PG 94. SITTING MOTIONLESS. I MEDITATE AND TRY TO KNOW THE TRUTH OF MAN'S CREATION... A VISION NOW LIGHTS MY MIND LIKE A FLAMING TORCH I SEE A CEMETERY WITH MOURNING FOLK GATHERING STRENGTH TO TURN AWAY AND LEAVE A FALLEN ONE BEHIND... IT IS ALSO CLEAR FROM SOME OF MR. WINTER'S POEMS HE IS A BELIEVER IN THE CONTINUITY OF LIFE AFTER DEATH. (QUOTE) FROM "THE SOUL WILL FOREVER BE" COSMIC CADENCES - PG-96. YOUR SOUL WILL FOREVER BE DEATH CANNOT TOUCH IT LIFE CANNOT CHANGE IT YOUR SOUL WILL FOREVER BE AS ALWAYS AS IT WAS BEFORE YOUR FLESH APPEARED AND CAME TO KNOW THIS EARTH!... YOUR SOUL WILL FOREVER BE ETERNAL TO THE END AND WHATEVER IT HAD BEEN WILL SURELY BE AGAIN.... THE BOOK COSMIC CADENCES IS READER FRIENDLY. WHILE THE COVER GRABS ATTENTION, THE POEMS ARE PRESENTED ON THE PAGES IN A MANNER THAT ENCOURAGES ONE TO KEEP READING AND DELVING INTO THE MIND OF THE AUTHOR THROUGH THIS WONDERFUL BOOK. "COSMIC CADENCES" IS NOT A WORK TO BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. WITHIN ITS PAGES THE POET HAS EXPRESSED SOME VERY PROFOUND THOUGHTS ON LIFE. HIS POEMS CONVICT AND LEAVE AN INDELIBLE INPRESSION WITH THE READER.
