Unsung Love Songs follows a poetic journey through romantic love, familial love, universal love, as well as acceptance and love of the self. The main emphasis of this collection is romantic love. The first flush of romance always involves fireworks, flowers and much swooning. This initial burst of passion is just the beginning. What happens when couples have families and they collect anniversaries too numerous to count? If you are fortunate enough to find true love and keep it, then it is the moments of constancy, humor and co-existing that make up an enduring partnership. This collection of poems celebrates the quiet, every day moments of love and how the recognition of this deep, abiding calmness can be the heart's biggest flourish of all.
