"In this thoughtful, lyrical, and soaring collection, Bob takes the reader on a journey of love, loss, and revelation—illuminating the quiet truths of everyday moments and a sense of the divine in unexpected places. His poems are a joy to read."
—Victoria Kelly, acclaimed poet and novelist, author of the poetry book When the Men Go Off to War and the novel Mrs. Houdini
OK, so you are thinking of buying this book, or you have already purchased it. And you are now reading the back cover to get a hint about what’s on the inside. Good. I’m here to help. Below is what the author has provided the publisher to give you a snapshot of what you will find within, including a small biography.
This book of 75 poems by Robert J. Mack is the culmination of a very creative period in the author’s life from the end of 2020 to the end of April 2022. The poems explore nature, life, our current culture, identity, good vs. evil, and what to make of it all. One poem regarding the 20th anniversary of 9/11 is owned by the Tunnel to Towers Foundation charity, and another about Winston Churchill is owned by the International Churchill Society. There are astute observations here about our lives on this planet, about the sense of wisdom we may get from our parents, and about God’s influence. Most of the poems have a short introduction.
