Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

This small collection of poems allowed me the rare privilege of being poetically anchored in a particular time and place, namely, Sarasota Florida and environs in the last quarter of the twentieth century. My love of Sarasota and Florida is a deeply rooted one, more unconscious than conscious if the truth be known. It drove me here thirty years ago and it remains the place where my soul is most at home. This may be why the Muse has chosen to clothe herself in its colors so many times. But who am I to say what drives the Muse? The wise poet will tell you it is the mystery of mysteries and has been since the first word formed on our lips.
