Copyright:  December 1. 2010 ISBN-13:  9780557776009

A sampling of the author's works from 2010, year of the tiger. Modern verse as well as traditional forms included.


Year of the Tiger: Poems of 2010 represents the author's works from this year. It includes poems from each seasons of the year, roughly arranged from winter themes through spring and summer and back to fall and winter once more, interspersed with poems of varied subjects and themes.



The apex of a summer's age,
this month of August glows along.
Before she turns her final page,
her heart bursts forth in throaty song.
While sleepy days hang close and long-
July has spent its sparkling pace,
and left behind its bright and strong
cascade of sunlight's beaming face.
The fullness of her sighs replace
the hot and breathless days gone by ,
and ease her through with quiet grace
along late summer's sapphire sky.

Anthem of August, mild and sweet,
shall sing a summer's soul complete.

Pearls Never Fade

She drags a suitcase,
day after day,
on a wheeled frame.
Scuffed work boots,
oddly out of place-
for her hair is bound up
in an elaborate French twist,
held in place
by a bejeweled clip.
Delicate earrings dangle.
A yellowed string
of genuine pearls
adorns her neck,
a bread tie holding
them together, tucked beneath
the collar of her faded coat.
Within the suitcase...
of a life gone by-
when strings of pearls
were whole and
milky white.
