The heart of a poet is one seated firmly in an appreciation for every detail of waking life—of the senses, emotions, and relationships that make each day uniquely special.
For some who are blessed with this gift of observation and expression, the work may take on yet deeper importance, for what better way to acknowledge the splendor of creation than by writing about the One who made it possible?
In this brief but impactful collection of poetry and prose, author Joseph Crain shares his take on nature, fatherhood, love, and his relationship with God. Alternating between careful rhymed verse and longer vignettes, each focused on a specific scene or feeling, this book will lead readers on a journey through the author’s deepest and most cherished memories, insights, experiences, and wisdom. Join him to slip into a new revelation on every page.

Joseph was born in Seattle, Washington. He was one of 4 siblings whose father was an automotive mechanic. His mother was a home-maker that held the household together in the austere places that he lived out in the foot-hills of Mt. Rainier or in Eastern Washington outside of the small town of Tonasket. He grew up in the beautiful, rugged wilderness of Washington State. He served 20 years in the U.S. Navy as a Hospital Corpsman, surviving four combat tours as a Marine Corps medic. He married his Parisian Princess and has one daughter and two sons of his own.
