A Plea to a Wine Cork is but one of many "happenstances" that befall the characters in this charming chap book, the stories revealed in many poetic forms. Here, the author reflects on life's dimensions in rhythms and tones befitting the vibrancy of all stages of life. Playful, inventive, and immensely accessible, we are treated to dreams and first-impressions, passionate stirrings of first loves, overcoming multiple traumas of disappointment, and unwanted resignation.
Rays: Wherever They Touch reach Jim Ross's short poetry and streams into our lives as it did in Scattered Reflections, A Plea to a Wine Cork, and Daydreams Alongside Surf. Evocative, the nature of Rays is fluid, expanding and contracting as it draws us along. As with Daydreams, even a brief listen inspires the magic of this wonderful book - wherever you listen.
Daydreams Alongside Surf: Cinquain Magic, brings us short poetry in the cinquain and butterfly cinquain form. Whether sitting alongside a soughing sea, or by a crackling fire in a winter snow storm; whether enjoying a spring moment in the morning sun on the deck, or sensing autumn and falling leaves from an urban balcony, cinquain brings us such magic.
"I anxiously wait for more from you, Jim Ross...."
A gem of a chapbook, Scattered Reflections is an eclectic romp through the chockablock playroom of its ever-accumulating, culturally urbane author.
