"...Your luminescence drapes my face in sheets, like garments of light you shed, like the lights of all cities I will never see, I
cannot bear to love you any greater, it would destroy me..."
- Unexpected Guest
"...Filled with unexpected delights,
these understated, tightly woven poems offer much beneath their deceptive directness. Full of taut, subtly rhythmic lines, they offer
us a refreshing dignity, humility, and tenderness."
– Jim Daniels, award-wining poet, fiction writer,and screenwriter
new collection of poems explores the subtle disguises where life hides, peering outward with eyes "like birthdays." The
poems ask, through the lens of the collection as through an old window: Who is the guest? The answer ranges from
people in homes, to humans in nature, compassion in strangers, dreamers in dreams, sadness in the heart, the creative
power in love, and finally to the secret longing for the human mystery that we carry always.
