This collection of poetry was written in two locations during 2013. The first section of this book contains those poems written in Mexico where I was living with my wife for three months, the typical Canadian snowbird existence which we seem to have adopted since our retirement from full time employment. The second section of the book contains those poems which were written in our home on the Canadian prairies in Saskatchewan. The poems were written while I was skyclad, a term that is as much spiritual as it is physical. Writing poetry is one thing, putting it out there for others to read is something entirely different. In presenting a poem to another person, one becomes vulnerable, exposed to the very core of one’s being. Poetry exposes the inner self, the urgings of the soul, the spirit, and the body. Ego doesn’t have as much say in any of this as it would like to claim. What arises comes from the depths of a personal unconscious, as well as the collective unconscious and the archetypal foundations of the human psyche. The poet becomes exposed and vulnerable through the poems, becomes transparent spiritually and psychologically. The masks of persona have no power with the words put onto paper. There is no hiding of who one is beneath the cultivated and conscious roles that one has carefully constructed over a lifetime. This is as naked as on can get.
