About this title


This book is an anthology of Cowboy Poetry written by Steve Deming. It is his perspective on life and life's moments of challenge. The cowboy way is direct and to the point. Each poem is a word picture that provides an opportunity to focus on the emotions that life generates. "The Source" takes a moment of words before each poem to tell the reader what they can expect in the reading. It gives the reader some insight into the origin of each poem, the inspiration, and the unique qualities, rhyme meters and techniques that Steve has used. The sequence of the poems is in chronological order. The recent poems first, leading the reader on a trail back into the poets history. As the writer's life has progressed, so have the stylistic features of the poems, and the rollercoaster of emotions related. Steve Deming is a trail rider, rodeo participant, winner of various buckles and awards. He is also a spiritual maverick, steeped in Christianity, and love of God, but one who meditates and believes in the reincarnation of the soul. Concentrate, if you will, on one poem at a time. Read each a few times until it flows for you. If you read but two or three poems at a sitting, you will know the meaning and take the subtlety, color, and flow of the word picture away with you. In concert, Steve plays music between each poem to give the audience the opportunity to cleanse their listening palate, and prepare for the next. Stick a copy of this book into your saddle bags and find a spot under a shade tree on the side of a hill to commune. Enjoy.
