About the Book

Much of life is about trying to bring order out of chaos. While that isn’t always possible, bringing a fresh look to the storms of life can bring order and peace to our inner worlds. These poems range from light-hearted to serious, but the themes are universal even when the topics are specific. A simple definition of entropy is that there is a general trend of the universe toward death and disorder. This is the reality of the world in which we live, so our challenge every day is to defy that second law of thermodynamics in whatever way we can. Let these poems speak to you about hope.
