AbstractDiamonds on a Flagpole is an original collection of poetry exploring the theme of journeys. In its most basic definition, a journey is a change, whether in a physical location, moment of understanding, or emotional state. Physical, intellectual and emotional journeys are represented through images, places, and language. A distinctive narrative style grounds the reader within time and space to create vivid scenes. These poems are inspired by traveling, childhood memories, relationships, and everyday occurrences. Each journey encountered in this collection is a unique moment on a larger scale: a diamond on a flagpole.
