"I’d rather be a thousand ripples,
or even just the one,
than a single drop in a dreary abyss
drowned; forever gone."
Ripples is an exploration of the effect and influence we have on each other–sometimes to build, at other times to break–as we share the world around us. Freedom and fate are woven together like the interplay between waves of our greatest oceans.
“History counts for nothing if it betrays a future,
even with the beauty and miracle of life.”
This collection brings together poems written in a range of styles and forms, including free verse, haiku, and a number of experimental rhythmic and rhyming structures.
