For a nyone with a deep respect a nd passion for the written word,

especially for those who share a great fascination for poetry in particular

as poetry tra nscends both imagination a nd interpretation. For it gives a

reader the ability to internalize the poems from his or her perceptive.

We will agree that poetry through the ages has touched the soul of

ma nkind. These trends will continu e as long as poetic writers continu e to

use imagery as they explore paths beyond space a nd time.

In essence, poetry is inspired by numerous huma n conditions a nd

personal experience. Be it from a good or a n ill. . .

Having said that, "F ROM NEAR & BEY OND" was born out of a n

extreme personal tragedy a nd a time of great adversity.
