Broken Birds is an opus dedicated to the broken-hearted. Its scathing language and acrimonious tone is reflective of a human heart which has been crushed in spirit. It journeys through anger, disbelief, bitterness and sadness, yet sometimes ventures toward forgiveness and resignation. Anyone who has ever experienced the intensity of a pulverized heart may herein find a sonnet that speaks to them. The sarcasm contained within Broken Birds is not for the faint-hearted, but hopes to heal the soul with sympathy. A few convivial sonnets and occasional satirical, wry humor help to lighten the dark mood of Broken Birds. Poetry can be cathartic and therapeutic. Whether structured sonnets, flowing free verse, lyrical odes, jaunty limericks or brief contemplative haiku, poetry has served to encapsulate the gamut of emotion experienced by humankind and makes us feel like we're not alone. Take it slow, savor the syllables and the rhythmic beat of the meter as you allow the poems to ricochet within your mind. Peruse these pages and let the author commiserate with you through the written word as you ignite your own renaissance.
