Overview

The idea for Mortal Thoughts — not in name but in body — began taking shape for me in November 2015. I – like so many others – wade in the erratic waters of intellect and mortality and all of the precious cognitive and ethereal lakes, rivers and streams that congregate between. I have been blessed to hone those temporal thoughts into poetry over the years, an extraordinary written art form that for whatever reason arises in me during my most mystifying times. Why does poetry so readily lend itself to the essence of transcendental deliberations, stoic cogitations and silly musings? The riposte is as simple as dreaming and as complex as mud. It does. For me, the answer begins and ends there, unveiling the journey as in the title, “Mortal Thoughts.”



Staring skyward at night-light

flickering stars yawn and wink

royal blue canvas eclipses daylight

moonlight on my bedspread plays. (1-4)



While the poems in this volume were written over a number of years — from the 1970s until the month of publication — the collection was compiled, edited and refined between February 2016 and June 2017. I hope you enjoy Mortal Thoughts as much as I did in its creation.
