Stephen R. Clark, author
This is Stephen's third volume of poetry. Moving past middle age into the final stages of life, these 74-plus poems reflect on a life lived and the memories accumulated. He reminisces about the frustrations of childhood, the anxieties of teenagers, and the challenges of adulthood. There is both sorrow and celebration, a recognition of necessary losses balanced by an awareness of hope. Death comes to all, but so does resurrection. For some, this realization is filled with terror or despair. For Stephen, it is filled with anticipation of great joy.
