This volume of "lifetime" poems traces the awakening and development of love in one man's journey of fifty-eight years through married life. Now eighty years old, he is still discovering how love evolves with age and is attempting to capture each new revelation and process it through his unique poetic filter. He is a devotee of the sonnet form and you will find that the majority of his poems are sonnets written in every standard rhyme sequence. In several instances, he even experiments with unusual rhyme schemes. In the second part of the book ("Other Poems"), the author explores other aspects of the human condition. Where he feels it necessary to clarify the subject of a poem or explain its origin, he provides an explanatory preface or footnote. This book is Mr. Mirabel's debut anthology although he has been urged by family and friends for many years to publish his poetry. His reason for finally succumbing to the pressure: "It would be nice to be discovered while I am still alive and able to be aware of it rather than after I'm gone and never to know it."
