ALAIN ON A LILAC NOT PAINTED
Novalis wrote, "The seat of the soul is where both the inner and outer world meet". The poems here represented are a continual amalgam of life experiences, and observations. I'm hoping that as I release these poems and share them with you that they will be easy and simple to understand.
It's a great joy and privilege to appreciate your works here on CTI Alain. Thank you for being the committed poet that you are and for sharing your voice the world.
