A reflective collection of poetry, Fall Leaves Float opens the door to life and invites us into the experiential journey. From the musty feel of an old library brought to life in “Brittle Pages” to the poignant wistfulness of “A Father’s Wish,” poet Darrin Kramer has a unique command of the human condition. He pleads with us to ponder the real meaning and significance of our very existence. We are reminded to appreciate the life we have been given and encouraged to never give up in the face of obstacles.

Through his poetic imagery, we are taken on a celestial journey through magnificent visual picture dreams. Fall Leaves Float enables us to visualize what “listening to silence” really means, and we are shown the depth and complexity of love. By filling empty space with thought, light, word, and meaning, Kramer allows us to pause and reflect upon our lives.

“Darrin Kramer’s poetry frequently guides you on an unanticipated end point. A person’s facial reflection or twinkling eyes, a kiss, snow in winter or the path of a floating leaf. These are some of the visual images his prose conjures up. His writing style is free, loose, upbuilding and sure to prompt you to continue reading to completion as I did.”
—Frankie Gilliam Harrison, physical therapist

“Your work conveys lovely thoughts and is very mood-invoking.”
—Stephanie Hewitt, customer service
