A slender, vivacious volume of verse packed with music, magic, meditation, and humor. It’s an inspired primer for making merry in one minute or many. It’s the long-awaited (by his wife), concentrated product of one man’s attempts to examine, enjoy, and enhance for his friends the adventure of eternity.
“WHAT IS LIFE?
Life’s a struggle for momentum
when the force that warps its course
is the gravity of worldly human thought.
Thank God it’s not
for more than one or two eternities a shot.”
Sterngram crafts an eclectic collection of poems visiting life and all its nuances. A little existentialism, spirituality, what if’s, religion, trials and tribulations even mortality at your fingertips, and I am only touching upon the surface, all cleverly presented. You will find yourself smiling, laughing but make no mistake despite the levity you will find yourself lost in thought. This slim sparse collection is quite profound. A collection uplifting your spirit when the days weigh you down by providing a silver lining even when the clouds are the darkest. Sterngram delivers a whimsical but deep array of poems appealing to neophytes and/or the most seasoned of poetry aficionados. An all around patchwork of well written provoking poems all would enjoy, keep it close by, a sure-fire cure for what ails you, friend or family, highly recommend.
My favorites – The Banquet, What If?, Big Bang: Have a Good One, Doctors Orders, Wish Wash
