AVAILABLE NOW on  search for "Random Acts of Poetry."   Kindle eBook, or paperback.

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.’ 

My hopes and intentions are that anyone who reads these poems might experience some enjoyment, perspective, and appreciation of the content. If you come across a term with which you are not familiar, I encourage you to knock on the internet door or visit a library to learn more. Consider it a type of Easter egg hunt. There are lots of Easter eggs in this book. Please remember that these thoughts are from an engineering mind dabbling into the art of poetry.
