This new collection of 33 poems about life and love take their inspiration from the following Jiddu Krishnamurti quote…
“To be free, the mind must not only see and understand its pendulum-like swing between the past and the future but also be aware of the interval between thoughts…”
Each poem seeks to illuminate and explore the (sometimes) “spacious” gaps between our thoughts engendered by the many “things” and “moments” that make up our daily life. As such, each poem is a bit like a “still life” focusing on the often overlooked aspects of our day to day existence.

“Hey buddy just read through it! Simply put, it’s beautiful!!!”
~ Mark Shepard
“I’ve been reading and rereading the poems you gave me: sunflowers ii and iii, blooming jasmine, a turnpike, and tin watering can. I have sunflowers iii on the top of my pile, I think this is one of your best – the imagery, the rhyme, the way you lead us through your thoughts with the lifecycle of sunflowers as a metaphor for our changes. It’s elegant and powerful.
My other favorite (though there’s something to love in each one) is blooming jasmine. You’ve captured a moment and created suspense, as we enter this sensory-rich world of sight, scent, touch, and time stands still.
Sunflowers ii, A wonderful meditation on the wild and tamed nature of our relationship with flowers.
A turnpike- what can I say? You nailed it.”
