Poems written from the point of view of older age calling upon the author’s experiences and impressions that suggested ideas and revelations but continued to tap into his consciousness regarding the mysteries and surprises of the human condition.
A Day Completed, by Wayne Aronsen, sounds a clarion call for keen awareness of small details and nuances of daily living. In lean and evocative language, he plumbs the depths of the ordinary to discover what is exceptional–what he calls 'clean awareness.' In variety of poetic styles, he shares his deeply poignant observations about the disappointments, joys and vicissitudes found in deliberate, observant living.
Wayne Aronsen is the author of two poetry books: Art to Alchemy combined with images by photographer Robert Nease, published by Wayne and printed by Edition One Books; and A Day Completed published by Wayne and printed by Gorham Printing.
