In my newest book, I return to poetry
introducing a new collection of verses gathered under the title
As you see, the cover image is a clutch
of baby turtles making their ways for the first time to the sea
that for years upon years as nature permits will be their home.
They are homeward bound.
As -- in a sense -- are we all.
The poems herein are HomeWords for all
of us who are also headed homeward.
Some of the verses tease, some celebrate,
others consider the lives we share with ones we love. There are
poems of praise and poems of rebuke. I might say they are as
varied as life itself as we live it or as we wish we did.
