Poetry. A charming and compelling collection of poems, lovingly assembled by its editor after years of being knocked off his feet by poems he encountered in the process of teaching poetry at The Fromm Institute of San Francisco and making a growing stack of them on his desk. After years of careful selection the stack has been converted into a beautiful anthology, fit for future generations who seek the inspiration that the art of poetry has given us over the years."All I can say to David Watts is 'Thank You!' for having put this anthology together. You let the poems speak for themselves but you also chose wisely so that, together, their sum is larger than its parts."—Eileen TabiosContributors include: Rumi, Robert Hass, Sylvia Plath, Tomas Transtromer, Jane Hirshfield, Miklos Radnoti, Derek Walcott, A.

David Watts has published 7 books of poetry, three anthologies,and several essays on the subject of poetry and healing. He has also written as the alter ego harvey ellis, in a more deep consciousness voice that uses a quirky imagistic style. Two books of poetry has been published in this voice. He is a physician, a classically trained musician and a sometimes radio and television host and producer. This book arose "accidentally" as a result of a lifetime of collecting "killer poems"—poems that knock your socks off. These are together at last in POEMS FOR THE TIME CAPSULE.
