The Modern Day Poet is a collection of poetry that attempts to define the poet in relation to modern society. The poetry is heavy with imagery for the more serious reader, but is presented in a format of story telling that is easy and entertaining for the casual reader. To begin the poet invites you to share in his dreams with a simple poetic wish. Then follow the birth of the poetic mind as the poet explores the modern world, an exploration that ultimately ends in a crescendo of defiant hope. The poems in this collection are rhythmic and are best read aloud.
