Pink Crush, draws from my hobby scores written between 2001 2008. Thematically, its conversation is grounded in the beauty that the natural environment presents and where the statements veer into inspiration, these, record contemplation from biblical readings.

The poems in this collection are presented in various styles : Abecedarian, Acroustic, Cinquain, Diamente, Fibonacci, Free Verse, Ghazal, Haibun, Haiku, Limerick, Minute Poem, Sestina, Shanzi, Sonnet, Stellarenga, Tanka, Waka, zip haiku; and, The Fold - a genre, the structure for which, I formulated in an experimental workshop.
