Rosenberg's Farm
More than a poetry chapbook, it is a recapturing of a place and time dear to its author’s heart, and a nice testimony to the importance of place in each of our lives.

Excerpt from the poem Dichotomy

Many poems soar over heights of a beautiful bond.
With an insatiable appetite to wordsmith my deepest thoughts,
I sing of a relationship that is innocent, intimate and elegant.
I experience the brilliant light of love’s glory,
celebrate in songs of adoration, passion and commitment.

This transcending seesaw ride of self discovery
is mirrored in voracious fury of my poetic rant,
tasted in tender tranquility of my lyrical chant.
I escape from the aching, dark, dreary, dastardly dungeon
into indebtedness for each and every morning sunrise.

Poems From 2010-2013
