Whether impishly playful or starkly candid, these poems are always grounded in imagery that exposes essential truths and discerning wisdom.  This collection weighs vulnerability and innocence with courage and guile.  Richard gives us quintessential honesty and humility.  We sail on metaphors and similes to navigate uncharted realizations.
