I hadn't ever written a poem in my life until the night we moved into our "get away" place that I named - SLICE of HEAVEN.
That special night began my poetry career, and on future trips to our SLICE of HEAVEN, I would continue this writing based on actual situations. I envision this book to be the kind that you can open to any page at any time and read a poem or a narrative, and then reflect inwardly.
