The Hand of Love is a book that was never meant to be published, never to have an audience.
A collection of poems meditating upon the theme of love, crafted by the hand, inked by a poet compelled to write a soul's musing on love, the experience at the heart of being human.
This debut collection of poems is Book One of a trilogy, the prelude of love. The author is currently working on Book Two, the letter L, a Literary Affair: Poet & Muse.
