From the Author:

Once standing on a horizon, another horizon awaits.

Unfolding endlessly, approaching new days are great gifts of blessings.

Ascend on an observation platform in order to check out the road past and take aim at the road ahead.

Each of us living in a given domain is inscribing a history of one-self.

On the other hand, each of us like cells and organs, via abstruse passages connecting across each other's boundary, is being combined to constitute a higher dimension.

Each of us by standing on tiptoe has gained all sorts and kinds of time and space, which intermixed and entangled in a new dimension, is forming a splendid symphony. Breathing, eating and living together we are expanding the universe the wider and the bigger.

This book, A Selection of Poems, has been compiled in the spirit of sharing and devotion and through a process of selecting poems from my own work by me as well as being recommended by others.

Out of each of the nine poetry books, about the same number of poems from each book was selected.

It is my hope that it provides the reader moments of being together with wind, water and fire. Also is my hope that it will be an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the other side of eternity.

Sincerely I express my gratitude to many who poured out their hearts and best wishes toward publishing this book, A Selection of Poems.
