Like a snowflake falling on water

Here’s a poet unafraid of the ordinary, a man fixed on living his life in a straight forward manner, doing the things that were meaningful to him.  Better known in America, than here, he is acclaimed as Poet Laureate 2004 – 2006, and worked a day job in insurance for 35 years.  Familiar, and with a poetic sensibility he chooses to share, he is sometimes accused of sentimentalism, but is unafraid of that.

“If you pay attention to the ordinary world, there are all sorts of wonderful things in it,” he says. “But most of us go through the day without noticing.”

Now ain’t that the truth?
