This is a book of poetry by Colleen Church Leonard. For family and friends, that is enough information. For a lover of poetry, the publication of a new book is an invitation to wander new avenues laid down by an unknown author. Who knows what one may find, how one will be touched or what insights may be revealed. This foreword is not for them; it is for the reader wanting to know something about a person that values the contemplative life and writes poetry. Ms. Leonard is eighty-six years old, a wife for sixty-eight years and the mother to six children. She qualifies as a person who has experienced life in a certain locale. Ms. Leonard has had joy, sadness, love, friendship, grief, and dedication within an environment that demands concentration and commitment; far West Texas. She writes what she knows; what she has experienced. Ms. Leonard uses self-learned poetry forms and poetry forms taught by admired teachers to express her observation and involvement in a corner of the world most associated with oil, cattle and cotton. However, far West Texas is also a grand saga of human interaction, emotion and change seen through Ms. Leonard's poetic talents. She is especially attuned and sympathetic to the feminine persona within this challenging landscape.
