A journey can lead east and west, from north to south, up, down, over, under, in between, and next to.

A journey can last a minute, an hour, a year, a month, a lifetime.

Maybe it all depends on your point of view.

Where -- and how -- will these sixteen poems take you?

Winner 2000 Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award
