This book is for the day dreamers, The night thinkers, The summer skinny dippers For anyone who ever said ‘the night is young’ Or watched the sunrise on a beach Far from home--- But mostly it’s for you The quiet ones At parties Looking out of windows Wondering about the stars

It is this part-lyrical part philosophical approach to life that sets the mood for the collection of wonderful little couplets that the reader finds himself going back to repeatedly..

We just want The world to love The little monsters We are….

Several such precious nuggets are found all through the book, making it a delightful read. You can read it while snuggling into your warm blanket on a stormy night or reach out for his poems, if there is storm brewing in your head.

All she wanted was that cozy kind of love The kind that felt like Hot chocolate, Rainstorms, Or wood fires In small houses Hard to describe But you know it when you got it….

The subjects are as scattered as the images in the poet’s head. But beneath the basic imagery lies a deeply sensitive mind that has clearly undergone all the highs and lows of life.

We grow old chasing the truths we knew as children..
