My son said the words of my poetry
Are like stones smoothed and rounded by the sea
Like sea stones I have carried from the beach
I carry his analogy with me
While savoring the sayings all and each
Of his and other hearts in my own heart
As inward echoes after when apart
Love grows down deep like the roots of a tree
And up from these roots through trunk and through stem
Through bud and through bloom the seed comes to be
Smoothed like these sea stones and rounded like them
As life is love so love is poetry
Sea Stones is a distillation of the essence of this modern master's late poetry, tracing the poet's passage from the death of winter through the birth of spring into the life of summer, a blooming of the light in which every moment matters and every word tells in ascending progression through the days to always, through one life reclusive to all life inclusive, from +Steven Curtis Lance's heart to yours.

Sea Stones Among "Bestsellers in Poetry" at Blackwell UK
"...and may all our dreams come true."
I have just been so pleasantly surprised by a bit of good news that I feel like sharing it with someone, and who better to share it with than you who are so kind as to visit me here?
My new book Sea Stones, ISBN-10: 1847286003 and ISBN-13: 9781847286000, is now to be found among Blackwell UK's "Bestsellers in Poetry."
Although I was born in the USA, the Lances are an English family, as is my father, so it means so much to me on so many levels to be accepted and my work found worthy in the United Kingdom.
Everyone tells me that my new Sea Stones book is by far the best of all my nine thus far. I do hope you will have a look at it, and that you will like it as well. They tell me I am getting better at my work through practice.
Sea Stones is available everywhere now, all over the world, in both this Softcover Edition http://www.lulu.com/content/393223 as well as a beautiful Collectible Hardcover Edition http://www.lulu.com/content/393233.
Thank you for allowing me to share my happiness with you.
I appreciate everyone eating Lance snacks, but there is no direct benefit to me thereby. It is my little book, Sea Stones, which saves me.
May we all be successful in all we do, and may all our dreams come true.
Respect and solidarity,
A glimmer of hope in a glimpse of light
At the tunnel's end at the edge of sight
Appears through my tunnel-vision tonight
Dim in the distant darkness as I grope
Toward what could be a heartbreak but I hope
Since were it not for hope the heart would break
So I believe tonight and I will take
This spark across the shadows as a sign
Despite what clock and calendar may say
That someday some peace of mind might be mine
If not right now in the future somehow
If not today at least not far away
As those who judge such things give second looks
Beyond what clock and calendar allow
At me like what they see and buy my books
+Steven Curtis Lance
