In his first collection of poems, Eric Weiss explores humanity and nature as two separate entities and yet completely of one essence. These poems take the reader on a kaleidoscopic ride of emotion and imagery in the landscape of our living, be it the people we know or knew or the sights that we see. The lessons that we must learn and then teach to others are beautifully expressed in these poems. It is with simple and surreal honesty that Weiss's poems bring wonder and awe of the everyday occasions that we so ordinarily pass through into such focus. It is with profound thought that we will now walk with our senses in full bloom, fully realized through the imagery of In Autumn.
In Autumn stands as a reminder to us all of the conscious breaths of our being and wraps them into the art of our world. Whether the reader is inspired by a grasshopper that ignites a profound thought, the mystery discovered in a river's name, or the suspense the sky brings to the art a season paints, the emotion of the intimate poetry included in this collection will resonate for all who experience it.
Eric Weiss holds a degree in English Writing with a concentration in Poetry from Otterbein College, where he was on the Quiz and Quill editorial board. Weiss has published poems in several literary journals. Currently working in publishing for Pearson, Weiss resides in Westerville, Ohio. This is his first book.
