What people are saying:

"The covers designed by Keith are fascinating.  The open-ended border on the front image implies that your work is on going with more books to come. For me the title has many layers of meaning, suggesting a dedicated observer with an intimate connection, who acknowledges the craft of the writers and protects their legacy.  

By using your poetry to engaged with those writers, you become sensitively entangled with their work and life experiences.  In that regard, you are a co-creator, complicit in their stories, as if all good writing was part of one continuous tale connected by an invisible aesthetic thread.

I love the poems in this collection, particularly, “Lorca” and the deeply insightful,  “Virtuosity.”   Well done Robert."                        ~John L.
