When I look across the arc of my life, I love
That the peaks they mean so much
That the valleys came to define me
That the stars will twinkle on when I am gone
In a debut collection, Mark Taylor shares poems penned in his past with the hope of inspiring others to believe in a happier tomorrow.
Taylor lyrically explores diverse themes that include family, love, and life itself taking the reader to a sandy beach where a photographer shouts commands to his sun-kissed subject, an alley where a few crouch for coins and others sell mags off tatty loins, a simple song that transports a man to happier times, a weeping willow tree that holds youthful memories, and a moment of surprise, love, warmth, and beauty when a mum and son become one.
Human Lives in Rhyme is a volume of poetry that reflects on one man’s experiences and the world around him with the intent of providing hope to all that better days are ahead.
