Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My poems are meant to be fun. Writing poetry makes me happy, something I hope you'll share as you read.
I favor rhyme and short phrases in my poems. These often match a poem to the rhythm of my steps, which is inevitable since I frequently compose while walking. I also enjoy the discipline that rhyme imposes. It pleases my analytical mind when the perfect word presents itself, fitting both the poem's subject and its form.

My poetry is inspired by the real, objective world we all share and by Richard Feynman - one of the most important physicists of the 20th Century and certainly the most interesting. He wrote that "poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars - mere globs of gas atoms. I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more? The vastness of the heavens stretches my imagination - stuck on this carousel my little eye can catch one-million-year-old light. A vast pattern - of which I am a part... It does not do harm to the mystery to know a little about it. For far more marvelous is the truth than any artists of the past imagined it. Why do the poets of the present not speak of it? What men are poets who can speak of Jupiter if he were a man, but if he is an immense spinning sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent?"

I take his words as a challenge and this book collects some of the poems it inspired.

Though I couldn't resist revising some of them, these poems have appeared previously on my blog: may read my latest efforts there along with posts about my science fiction books and thoughts on science-related news. I look forward to your visits and comments.

From the Back Cover

A collection of short poems in rhyme
Inspired all by science,
Outward to the edge of time
Or tied to earthly cadence.
Light and written all for fun,
There is no angst to hide.
You're invited now to sample one
Of my poems inside.
Rhyme and Reason Volume Two
