"When Ruby Was Still in My Arms" was written in 2015, knowing she would grow, but not knowing who she would become. "Whatever will be, will be, the future's not ours to see." (Que Sera Sera). (You can read "When Ruby Was Still in My Arms" and the poem that was chosen for the back cover “The Best of It Is, There Is No Other Choice" by visiting the following link:

"A Tale of Two Jails," "Mask," "Is It a Departure or Coming Home," "A Place," "A Concubine".... The author tried to reason them into the finite reality with or without avail. Maybe you will have a better luck? "Truth is within ourselves." (Robert Browning) "And it was at that age....Poetry arrived in search of me" (Pablo Neruda). In any case, let it be, let poetry reach inside to touch us.
