Selling Copies of My Chapbook “Theater of Life”

For those of you who might be interested in purchasing my poetry book “Theater of Life” which was published by Finishing Line Press I have reduced the price to $7.00 plus $1.00 for postage.

Here is a sample of one of the poems:

Ray of Hope

You feel the night’s loneliness

as you watch the pumpkin-colored sun

come to rest.

Seagulls cry loudly

as they circle overhead,

drops of salty water touch your lips,

sea spray cleanses your soul

when waves move in from the ocean.

You walk along the aged shore

where others have traveled

reaching out for a fragile thread.

It ‘s nice to see the cardinals and other birds have arrived and the singing high in the branches of this tree is such a welcomed sight.

First Day of Spring and Lots of Snow

Yesterday was the 1st day of Spring but Mother Nature did not cooperate. She proceeded to drop 7 inches of snow on our already snow covered yard.

This morning it is still lightly snowing. Will we see crocuses this Spring? I rather doubt it. The ground still has mounds of snow and April will be here in two weeks.

The animals are in a dire straight as far as food is concerned. The hawks are circling overhead in search of prey. Three houses away from ours a bobcat was photographed walking in the backyard in search of food. We are in a suburban residential Connecticut area and this is highly unusual. Coyotes have been seen scouting many backyards.

Oh, Spring hurry and arrive!!
