Verses that explore destiny, fables, time, freedom, and captivity are offered in this collection of more than 100 poems. Combined are a classical structure and a modern style, with personal observations that awaken the senses. Strongly influenced by yoga, the poems express precise observations on the natural world andhuman nature with great clarity and economy of words. They are imbued with love and a feeling of triumphant optimism over the adversities of life.

I do think you write wonderfully well ... You write with a sparse and elegant choice of words, and there is a welcome touch of wit in some of your verse.' NIGEL HAWTHORNE
