Poems from the Rocky Mountains is about situations people experience in their environment as they happen and at different times, using poetic language and imagery. This is not a run-of-the-mill-poetry book; neither will it make me famous. I was told that to be a famous poet, the poet has to be six feet under first, and at my age, I don't want to be famous at all.
The book is the result of training and experience as an immigrant, adopting the language, the way of life, and the way of thinking in my adopted country for the last sixty-eight years, never forgetting that English is my daily means of communication. In order to believe the above statement, you have to read my book.
I bring the flow of my Indian/Hispanic heritage and sensitivity to the American poetic stream, which produces out of the two factors, the oneness that makes Poems from the Rocky Mountains a unique book. This is why most of the topics in it are as American as baseball and apple pie, but spiced with tropical flavor: goal achievement, the Rocky Mountain landscape, the Old West tradition, patriotism, geographical wonders, personal, family and social problems, abstract and humorous poetry, the tropical landscape, international, romantic, lyrical, child-appropriate, rhymed and metered styles and elegies.

During a particular period in my life, I felt as if I was between the proverbial rock and hard place. It was as when the children of Israel in the book of Exodus on their journey to the Promised Land came to a place where Pharaoh's army was behind and the Red Seas was in front. I could not go forward and had no plans to go backward, and the Red Sea would not open up to go forward. The frustration of being in that place was terrible, and I was at my wit's end.
Just as an airplane arriving at its destination and preparing to land is told that it will not be able to do so because of some unforeseen circumstances is placed in a holding pattern, so was I. Come, journey with me and see and learn what the Lord taught me.
Life happens to our best-laid plans, but God orders our steps even when we seemingly are not moving. I was not between a rock and a hard place; I was in God's holding pattern.
Robert William Service (1874-1958) was a poet and writer, often called "the Bard of the Yukon," is best known for his humorous tales in verse "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" and "The Cremation of Sam McGee," from his first book, Songs of a Sourdough. When World War I broke out, Service tried and failed to enlist, covered the war briefly for the Toronto Star, then worked as a stretcher bearer and ambulance driver with the American Red Cross. While convalescing in Paris, he wrote a new book of mainly war poetry, Rhymes of a Red Cross Man, dedicated to the memory of Service's "brother, Lieutenant Albert Service, Canadian Infantry, Killed in Action, France, August 1916."
This is a complete collection of the work produced during the Space Coast Writers' Guild 2015 "Book in a Day" conference. Participants took full advantage of new technology to collaborate on a book that included activities such as brainstorming story ideas, collaborative writing, agile editing, graphic design, and social media marketing. Using the online book production capabilities of the Kindle Direct Program, the book was created faster than ever before. By the end of the conference, everyone was a published author. It was a day well spent!
