Beyond the Poems takes the reader past just the words and deeper into what inspired the poem. If necessity is the mother of invention, then inspiration is the papa of poetry! As you read each poem, you may ask yourself, “Now what made him write that?” or “What inspired Vincent to create that poem?” I am welcoming you into my poetic soul and sharing my inspirations with you. Keep an open mind because some of the meanings and origins will surprise you!
