An anthology of poetry, much of it meditative in nature which has been written over the years. Many of the pieces have been inspired by life events or my world travels. I have been writing poetry for much of my life. Visual imagery was used to help the reader evoke their own personal image while reading in the hopes of bringing about a feeling of well being and peace.
