Thank you for your kind support of my efforts to write poetry. Recently, I looked at the list of poems I’ve posted here, and I found fourteen! Then I realized that I’d produced enough poetry to publish it as a chapbook:
Heart, Head, Hand: A Writer’s Soul in Verse
Illustrated in full color
36 pp., 8.5″ x 8.5″
Coming Soon to CreateSpace
(ISBN-13: 9781979251075, ISBN-10: 197925107X)
Ye ask why stay I
upon this green height?
Smiling, I cannot confess
how here my heart rests,
like a peach blossom
on the bosom
of a stream:
In heaven on earth,
why return to the world?

After Question and Answer on the Mountain, by Li Po (701 – 762) .
