Welcome to my third book of rhymes, poems, and musings. My first book was Overcast Mind, My life in Poems, and my second book was It Is Still Morning, A continuation of My Life in Poems. As my life changes and evolves, so does my reason for writing. What once started out as a means of survival has now grown into a passion. I write because something deep inside me calls out to me to do so. I have added some of my original sketches and illustrations again in this book. A few of them are new ones I drew this year. Once again I invite you to join along with me in a journey of fantasy, of truth, and of life events. Like real life, sometimes my poems are happy, silly, contemplative, questioning, sad, or even desperate.

Five Star Review on Amazon by Mike I
Ann Christine Tabaka’s book is beautiful. A simple word, but the most appropriate. The poems, the writing, even the cover, are beautiful. The poetry is easy on the eyes, but powerful. Poems such as “Poems are Seasons” have such great imagery. Christine presents an unflinching look at social media in “Unreal” and again, the imagery shines. “Pain of the Goodbye” caused me to get a lump in my throat by the end. In many instances, she writes about common experiences that we as humans all live, but puts such a fine spin on the issue, for example, the poem “Disorientation.” Christine states at the beginning that poems are the stories of our lives. Her life has certainly been rich as you will discover for yourself as you turn these pages of heartfelt and insightful lines. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this most excellent read. YOU WILL EXPERIENCE EVERY EMOTION UNDER THE SUN, EXCEPT DISAPPOINTMENT.
