Bare Witness

“Poetry is the journal of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air.” Carl Sandburg’s quote captures the transcendence one feels when expressing a poem. Each of these poems was lovingly selected from a lifetime of attempts at flight. The observations and reflections are imaginative expressions of the myriad experiences encountered on life’s journey.
