Over the course of my life, poems have been essential and they have been formative. They are interwoven with my close encounter experiences, because it is only in the ideas and feelings evoked by poems–both dark and light–that I can find sufficient complexity and resonance to enable me to think meaningfully about this greatest of all human events, the contact experience.
My hope is that, as time gradually causes mankind to awaken to who we really are and where we really are, and who our visitors are, that little deposits of meaning such as I have tried to make here will offer a useful resonance.
In the meantime, for those of us who already know what is happening, I have tried to capture here the textures of my early life experience as they formed around the poems that I loved, the poems that are to this day hidden in my heart.
