Written over a five year period beginning in 1996, these poems are the second volume to be published by this writer. They are personal and pensive and as easy to understand as any reader might wish. They range over a number of topics through a meditational lens. See for yourself. Arthur Marinello is a transplanted New Yorker, a Brooklynite. He has lived in California most of his life. His career as a psychologist has fit in well with his kind of approach to life. Since his retirement he has been able to indulge his various interests. Furniture making and gardening among them.
