Unexpected Colors  Poems

by Robert Moore
Unexpected Colors

From the black on white text and illustrations in this beautiful little volume emerge flavors of music, familiar scents from nature, and artistic subtleties to provide unexpected colors that transport the reader to that sensitive space of Robert Moore's experience.

"Robert Moore's latest collection of poems, Unexpected Colors, serves as a mirror, reflecting to the reader the wide range of his interests and the breadth and generosity of his soul. His deep spirituality, encompassing all creation, shows in the first poem 'Beginnings,' with life as a ball of light tossed into the blue waters of Earth by a creator who will watch over her handiwork with patience and love. His social conscience and his ironic wit blend in the delightful 'This Is Not a Protest Song.' His dedication to science, his concern for the environment, the music engrained in him that is evidenced by the rhythm of his meters, the love with which he greets life, are all here in this fusion of the essential Robert Moore."

        —Pat Parnell, author of Snake Woman and Other Explorations, Finding the the Female in Divinity and Talking with Birches, Poems of Family and Everyday Life.
