I am proud to announce the cover for my new poetry collection entitled, Reflections and Dreams. This will be a collection of thirty lyrical poems, but I am not sure when I will publish it – I think I will self-publish this since there isn’t a lot of demand for poetry.
These poems, which I began writing three years ago, relate to things I have experienced and things I dream about, hence the name of the title. Each poem is either a reflection or a dream and they are about the people in my life, the places I have been and my relationship with God. For instance, one poem is about my ex-wife and our marriage. Another one is about my cultural heritage. I suppose one must understand me before they can understand the poems, but then again poetry is meant to be read first, ask questions later. You might say the man standing on the rock in the image is….well, me.
Poetry fans and non-poetry fans will like this, because it relates to all of us. If you read the poems carefully, you’ll end up saying, “Why, yes! I can relate to that.” I have been actively submitting these poems individually to contests, and one of them was published last year. I’m hoping for more success. Since things are kind of hectic in my life, I can’t say when this will be released. I’m hoping for sometime in the next two years, depending on how things go. If I’m successful, I hope you will be the first to buy it. I’m sure it will be a great read! I’ll be putting more information up about my poems soon.
