Publisher:  Vivisphere ISBN-10:  1587760339


Copyright:  Jan 1 1998

A poetic reminiscence about lovers and other people I encountered while living in Wine Country, (Northern California.

Barnes &
Peter Cooper

Five major sections (almost complete books in themselves): Tannery Row, Cuttings Wharf, The Woman of the Horses, Ariadne's Bookstore, and Beginning Susan; covering 8 years of intense involvement with the people, artists, lovers, and the unique experience of living in a wine growing region.


I have warily circled the sacred fire
searching for some spot that was merely warm
never daring to step lest its burn be more real
than the imagined ecstasy of walking its full length

But you were there, right in the middle of the smoke
and rippling atmosphere and your feet never scalded
until you stepped away believing the dirt
around my feet had a similar safety

Reader Reviews for "The Valley of My Western Heart"

Reviewed by Corina Stirb 8/6/2004
Well, I didn't have the chance to read it all (which I will change soon), but what I did read makes me gain the belief that I stumbled across one of the most imaginative minds I have met...This "poesia" comprises many sides of human emotion, mostly the positive and light one, very intelligently structured and conveyed. I am grateful to have had the chance to read this book.
