|Title||Eggstraordinary eggs and other poems of fancy, of despair and of hope|
|Description||I like to think that the overall trend of my life is toward the light. In publishing these poems, I also like to think that they may offer the reader some inspiration, upliftment, and at best, a means of transition from despair to hope when times are darkest.|
"O words be my cauldron
Spat through the blackness
To shatter the horror
Of deathdreams today!":
The basic collection begins in May 1972 with six poems inspired by a trip around the world which I gave to myself as a 36th birthday present. It ends with the poem "Arrow Man" written in January 1990 at the start of the final decade of the 20th century, aimed towards the positive future I wish most heartily for us all. I invite the reader to share my journey through poetry and through time. Mahalo/Thank you for your companionship."
