… the Poet’s Heart

Creating an Extraordinary Life: the Poet’s Heart is a composite of 95+ poems that reflect some of my innermost thoughts. The poems create a puzzle to fit together, ponder, and enjoy. Sometimes the poems flowed out in almost final form. At other times– not so much — the poems told a story that had to be hammered and chiseled to find their place.
