To the Reader,

First, thank you for your time to read this.

A little about me. I was raised in inner city New York. My father was from Jewish background, my mother from Anglo-Protestant background, but both were alienated from their traditions. Agnostic themselves, they raised my siblings and me to make our own decisions about religion. Ironically perhaps, from college on I grew increasingly drawn to “the God question” with my initial interest in the Hindu, Buddhist, and Tao traditions.

    Glen Kappy sees beauty in every day affairs.His loving and sensitive heart sees God's grace all around.
    In his poems are hidden the sweetness of lilac..that take us by surprise.He is an inspiring presence on Poem Hunter website.

    Let me quote from Glen Kappy's poem and my response to the poem

Best Poem of Glen Kappy

The Pull Of Poetry

I got there
just before it closed
and checked out
the book of poetry
I had on hold

and opened it—
the key unturned
in my ignition—

and read… and read…
till all was in blue shadow
and the chill insistent
on my neck
and shoulders.
