Random Acts of Poetry

Kindle eBook $ 0.99

Paperback $ 9.99 on amazon.com

Take a break from the fast life and breathe. Exercise your mind and let it paint a picture. Read a poem a day and ask yourself if and how it applies to you. Random Acts of Poetry is titled appropriately as that was just the way it happened – randomly. I have categorized my poems into nine topics in various forms and disciplines. Subjects include philosophy, humor, science and math, religion, politics, family, death, temptation and mental illness. Most poems are free verse, but there is at least one of the following: limerick, haiku, sonnet, and acrostic. I hope at least one speaks to you personally and makes you go ‘hmmm.’

Random Acts of Poetry - Act 2

Kindle eBook $ 0.99

Paperback $ 9.99 on amazon.com

If you enjoyed my first book of poetry, you'll love my second anthology. This book contains 54 poems covering a variety of topics such as dreams, family, humor, mental illness, philosophy, music, love-romance, nature, politics, trivia and a special section on haiku. There are two sonnets, but mostly my poems are free verse with end-rhyme - most of the time. I switch things up with meter as I write in iambic triameter, tetrameter and pentameter and occasionally I mix in some spondee moments. There are some surprises and mysteries that I think you will find entertaining.
