Recurring theme is night, darkness accompanied by death, loneliness, moon and you. Stumbling, birds, the sea and insects make an appearance as often they do in poems of all poets. The saving grace is that the poems are short and easy to read. The man died in 2003 of luekemia, here is a poem

rest notes I A small Space For breath

A short Time to Greet

A cold Moon On frost

ii Still You and Me

Still-at Thrown Peace

This Frosty Night

Iii We gather A Breathing

Space to us -a frosty

night in a warring age.
