Poems For Lovers

Front Cover
Outskirts Press, Jan 9, 2020 - Poetry - 90 pages
Love in its many facets defines humankind. It is our shared desire and joy, and sometimes our shared frustration and sorrow. This collection illuminates love’s progression, from infatuation to romance, commitment, illness, death, and rebirth. We love, we experience loss, we learn to love again. With a voice and technique rooted equally in tradition and exploration, these pieces are a poet’s gift to the reader—a gift that can be opened many times to reveal new wonders.

About the author (2020)

Richard M. “Rick” Georges is a solo law practitioner, practicing in St. Petersburg, Florida. He is active in the St. Petersburg and Florida Bars, and presents seminars and programs on the use of computers and technology in the practice of law. He has authored the “FutureLawyer” column in various publications, has taught law office management and computer-assisted legal research at the college and law school level, and has taught poetry at the college level. His “FutureLawyer” blog is widely read, and he is a recognized expert in the application of computers and technology to law practice. He previously published Life Is Simple, Really—Poems About Life, Loving, Fun, and Family, which reflected his belief that those things are more important to happiness than anything we do in our professional lives. His poetry owes a debt of gratitude to his college professor and guide, Miller Williams, who helped him find his poetic voice at Loyola University of the South. This collection focuses on love, at every level, and is published upon his marriage to Diane Bernadette Twar, to whom the book is dedicated, with love and affection.
