My dreams tend to be recurring dreams. They consist of my going from place to place in a collage of real vicinities that I have visitedi.e. past residences, learning institutions, libraries, retail stores, and vacations to name a few. The poems included herein follow this pattern and are expressed with varying degrees of the five senses as well as intellect with balanced rhythmic flow. The meter of traditional and nontraditional poetic forms is utilized for this flow; hence, the title, Cadence Of Dreams, which I believe to be apropos. Furthermore, the poems of Cadence Of Dreams give a snapshot of my experiences and wisdoms throughout life. Youll find that meals and nature tend to predominate the subject matterboth are near and dear to my heart-of-hearts. They call to my mind a quote from the naturalist John Muir (1838 to 1914): The power of imagination makes us infinite. It is my preference to believe that the passage of pieces of my imagination to you stirs your imagination. Thus, we live on . . .
