| “Falling Water: Stories & Poetry” takes a incisive, penetrating look at life and that offers an insightful look at the realities we all face- the highs and the lows, hope, happiness, joy and the inevitable grief and suffering that must accompany the good.
Most of the stories and poems in this were compiled from handwritten notes in journals I’ve been keeping for several years. The title story, “The Waterfall”, is a powerful study of loss, acceptance, and growth. In “Butterflies”, a young boy learns a lesson about acceptance and appreciation of what he has been given. “The Lighthouse” is a moving tale that’s as close to poetry as prose and offers a beautifully upbeat ending. “Grandma Brown” is a nostalgic and emotionally moving tale of familial love. “A Boy and His Dog” tells the story of a young boy learning to accept that nothing is ever truly lost. “Waiting” is an incredibly powerful and moving tale of a man’s love and acceptance in the face of the finality of dying. “The Source” is a classic short horror story. “And When I Got Home” features a young man finding his own path to spiritual enlightenment. A short collection of poems range from the unusual to the more traditional and beautiful. And “Wisteria” is a moving story of a man visiting his now abandoned childhood home and realizing that nothing ever truly dies. I think there’s something here for every taste and hope that all who read these words will find meaning in them!
The poems were compiled especially for this book from handwritten journals I’ve kept over the years. They balance the stories and lend a greater understanding and appreciation of life in all its complexity. These are tales of love, and loss, hope, strength, acceptance and the courage to carry on in the face of adversity. There is sadness in these vignettes, but also hope in the redeeming goodness of life.
