By George Haecker

paperback • 60 pages • 5 x 7

This is the third in a series of poetry books, including Meanderings and Meanderings Too, that explores day-to-day life, events, and circumstances, and the messages found in them. There is no hidden agenda, just observations laid before us.

The first poem in the book is "Earthern Gray":

When we poured the new walk
in the backyard
to keep from puddle jumping
while winding our way from drive to door

it laid clean and bright and
I wondered with the patina of the cottage time-worn and mellowed
when the walk might adapt

to this old place and if I would live long enough to see its whiteness and brightness
weather dim and darken
to an earthen gray.
