We are in the midst of a poetry renaissance! Weird times always seem to create a hunger for poets to craft poems that cut through the cultural haze with observations and messages that resonate with our higher calling. Think back to the Beats and their response to the culturally up tight 50's.

Get Sam's latest poetry book "Cogitation".

Cogitate--verb: To think deeply about something; meditate or reflect. In this over-stimulated fast-paced society everyone is so busy there is no time for cogitation. Now only rebels and misfits cogitate. What a pity.

To correct this contemporary problem Sam uses poetry to examine the cracks in our culture. Cracks that can have devastating personal, ecological and social consequences.

For him cogitation is a metaphor for poetry's power to provide insights that can recreate our so-called modern world and heal beleaguered souls.

Far from doom and gloom, Cogitation showcases a wit that will make you smile. Crack open Cogitation and celebrate his offbeat take on the foibles of modern society.
Sam's award winning children's book:

Let's educate children about the calamity of plastic getting into our inland waters and oceans

The escapades of the colorful characters in Electric Honey provide a front row seat to the cultural clash which rocked the country in the 1960's and sowed the seeds of today's conservative backlash. A joke by a small of university pranksters triggers a war between the students and an ageing right winger who needs a cause to breathe life into both his struggling conservative organization and his failing love life. By challenging the students and their mythical threat he wages a fight for America's soul that makes the gyrations of Rush Limbaugh, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Ronald Reagon seem perfectly rational.
