Please Don’t Ask is an eclectic mix of spiritual and secular poetry written by Lyman Ditson. You will find inspirational as well as comical work in this book. Do not be surprised by the occasional critique of situations that are happening in the world today. Two poems, “Cricketland” and “Adobe Land” will seem very familiar to those who know Austin, Texas, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. The inspiration for these poems comes from not only a deep commitment spiritually but also an awareness of how day-to-day life can be affected by things outside of our understanding. Please Don’t Ask is enjoyable both as a casual read but will also be of interest to students of life in general. Please Don’t Ask is suitable for readers of all ages and all students of life.
