About Sam

Cerca Trova is the Latin for ” Seek and you Shall Find “…. I’ve been in constant search for meaningful answers to many issues in my life..i have found some and many are still missing… I found answers in music, in poetry,in other’s words,and my personal experience… Yet I’m still seeking answers for so much more… I would love to share with you what I’ve found so far,and take you along on my journey in seeking the rest…

    I can’t and I don’t like to define, since definitions vary with contests. That doesn’t stop me from trying to define a couple of things you mention. It’s our nature. And, by the way, I define your poem as an interesting challenge. Rhythmically thoughtful!

  2. Very much enjoyed this piece friend!

    Blessings, R.A. Noble

    no need to define- this poem though simple rocks! my potluck..

  5. Sam, this is so thought-provoking. I think I see most things as part of a continuum…wrote a poem that said something like darkness is only a degree of light. I have a problem with absolutes, blacks and whites. It seems to me like life is varying shade of gray.

    Point taken. Well done, Sam. Very well done.

    I like the contrasts … and then the summation … nice direction and flow! I do not do well with defining … or explaining … there are always so many tendrils as possibilities thus a part of the whole! Nicely done!
