This book's a dipsy-doodle dizzy trip that “could have been co-authored by Mother Goose and William Blake,” says George Ella Lyon, Poet Laureate of Kentucky, in her blurb on the back cover.

Marc Harshman, Poet Laureate of West Virginia tells you: “Prepare to be astonished as you travel through these poems, where what’s considered is not leisure but life, death, and purpose.”

Meredith Sue Willis, author of many well-known novels, including “Oradell at Sea,” also adds: “To take this journey is to make a surprising spiritual preparation for our own life journeys.

                    This is Sunshine Hill
                    where I sit
                       for a spell.  I ponder
                sundogs, the smell
                   of a leaf, over-ripe
apples, the sour
      and the sweet.

              I reflect on crime.
               I examine dirt.
                   I take off my laminated
            lemon-colored skirt.
                I take off my blouse,
it’s pleated, it’s simple.
     I watch
          the clouds,
     how they shift
and glow.

                I dance with joy.
          I know what I know.
