Publisher:  Sun Rising Poetry Press ISBN-10:  193324223X


Copyright:  Mar 2006

The fallout of hurricanes Katrina and Rita have left most of us shaking with a new awareness about devastation, poverty, and how fleeting life can be.

Soft cover, 196 pages, Sun Rising Poetry Press.


The Vagaries of Nature, Arrogance of Man

refusing to leave his dog
a floating man shakes his head
moving away from the chopper
the poison in the river
blinding him to the dangers
his dog has already faced

pluckrd from a slow death by starvation
many will think themselves rescued
harbouring wickedness within each cell
exposed to the vagaries of nature
and the arrogance of man
