In many ways, poetry is the music of literature. It often reflects the changing moods and trends in society. But somewhere along the way, we have lost the gift of language. TIME SPENT FALLING is reminiscent of a time when that gift was treasured. In rich tones, the reader travels through a world of sensual discovery; an awakening heart with a deep sense of longing. This is not a book about a couple. It is the point of view of a man alone who desires the rain as much as he wants to fly too close to the sun.
