In his first collection of poetry, Dennis Jones asks the reader to take a few minutes to listen to poems which have emerged from his ‘reptilian soul.’ Using poetry, Dennis takes the reader through musings, large and small, exposing his world of recollections filled with solemnity and humor. The poetry is so varied that the reader will wonder what could possibly come next. Dennis shares experiences that tap into the reader's soul, driving reflection and recoil.
The variety of his experiences has led to intriguing, sometimes startling, insights into his life and the lives of others. The Frog in the Philodendron includes tributes to others, observations about the impact of others and a "tip of the hat" to those life experiences that make each of us unique.
“I too," he writes, "am waiting for the One who has promised to play the music that will guide me home."
