From the introduction to the 108 poems in this book: "Poetry draws upon the potential of the so-called ordinary. In truth, the ordinary is an impostor of our perceptions of everyday life, a fiction of our habitual imagination. There is nothing ordinary about anything. Poetry functions as a language to probe deeply into the ordinary...Written mostly between 1994 and 2015, the 108 poems in this book address various themes. These poems fall into five primary areas – love, time, self, change, nature and Dharma. The poems and prose invite an enquiry, a moral view, a reflection, a polemic and occasionally an expression of outrage. We should not imagine that truth belongs narrowly to scientific journals, religious textbooks or enlightened masters. Poetry has the capacity to reveal a truth previously hidden from perception.
