Written in the final years of Bruce Beaver's life, these honest and generous poems look back on a life fraught with illness and turmoil, but one concomitantly enriched by poetry, music, art, and a love affair lasting a lifetime. The poems - mindful of the new millennium - meditate on death and destruction, loss and frailty, while remaining faithful to the promise of life and birth, regeneration and creativity.
