In my poetry, I, search for answers to life?s questions. The Poetry of Life II, sometimes emotional, sometimes playful, is based on my personal feelings, observations, and experiences in my life and travels. It is a book about everyday occurrences, such as love, relationships, hunger, poverty, war, nature, and death. The poem "Memory" describes lovers separated by time and distance, while their love remains strong. The poems "Lover?s Prayer," "Lover?s Thanks," "Lover?s Questions," "Response," and "Soulmate," describe the openness between two lovers. "Celestial" tells of a love that is unattainable. Nature, a mysterious power in the poems "Cry of the Ancients" and "O?Moon," contains secrets of Mother Earth. The poems "Hope," "Faith," and "Paradise Lost" reminds us that no matter how bad things are, no matter what humanity does, there is always hope for the "Salvation of Humankind."
