Walter Howard: Reflections in Moonlight
There is something old-fashioned and sage-like in Walter Howard’s poetic voice. I can imagine him reading from a mountaintop -- with the raging elements a backdrop to his words. Howard is a learned man-- and has been an academic for many years-- but his poetry is in the tradition of a true romantic. He uses nature and emotion to find spiritual truth. He embraces beauty-- with all its allure, but is not afraid to reveal its frightening and dark side as well.
