The story book contains fifteen miniature paintings and their stories written in the themes of human love, divine love and adventures intertwined with nature, history, passion, intense emotions, humanity, spirituality and benevolence. In the stories, the focus is on the detailed observation of the main characters towards all the tangible and abstract things that flow around them. The characters give prominence to their emotions as much as possible upon the events and situations they find themselves in. Most of the characters are interpreting and seeking the quest for meaning.

Additional to the sub-title, this is a selection, translation and lengthy explication of 3000 haiku, waka, senryu and kyoka about a major theme from I.P.O.O.H. (In Praise Of Olde Haiku).If the solemn yet happy New Year?s is the most important celebration of Japanese culture, and the quiet aesthetic practice of Moon-viewing in the fall the most elegant expression of Pan-Asian Buddhism=religion, the subject of this book, Blossom-viewing ? which generally means sitting down together in vast crowds to drink, dance, sing and otherwise enjoy the flowering cherry in full-bloom ? is less a rite than a riot (a word originally meaning an ?uproar?). The major carnival of the year, it is unusual for being held on a date that is not determined by astronomy, astrology or the accidents of history as most such events are in literate cultures. It takes place whenever the cherry trees are good and ready. Enjoyed in the flesh, the blossom-viewing, or hanami, is also of the mind, so much so, in fact, that poetry is often credited with the spread of the practice over the centuries from the Imperial courts to the maids of Edo. Nobles enjoyed link-verse contests presided over by famous poet-judges. Hermits hung poems feting this flower of flowers (to say the generic ?flower?= hana in Japanese connotes ?cherry!?) on strips of paper from the branches of lone trees where only the wind would read them. In the Occident, too, flowers embody beauty and serve as reminders of mortality, but there is no flower that, like the cherry blossom, stands for all flowers. Even the rose, by any name, cannot compare with the sakura in depth and breadth of poetic trope or viewing practice. In Cherry Blossom Epiphany, Robin D. Gill hopes to help readers experience, metaphysically, some of this alternative world.

THE SILENT TEAR Steeped in the culture, wisdom and conflict of sixteenth century Asia, Mike Doan’s The Silent Tear tells the story of Le and his journey from boyhood tragedy and abandonment to adult fulfillment, joy and acceptance of responsibility. After witnessing his father’s death when their village is destroyed by bandits, Le’s devoted mother releases her only child to the care of monks at the Shaolin temple. Under the tutelage of kindly Master Wong, Le masters the physical discipline and demands of Shaolin kung fu, as well as the spirituality of compassion and generosity that eventually guide his reentry into the world in search of his mother. Though her attempts at visiting her son at the temple are thwarted each year, Le’s mother never forfeits hope that, one day, she will reunite with her beloved son. In the meantime, through employment as a cook, she develops a surrogate family consisting of a range of characters including the coveted courtesan, Su, the house master, Mr. Phu, and the lovely but uncontrollable master’s daughter, Ling. When Le eventually reunites with his mother and finds love with a wife who, herself, is a gifted swordswoman, his one goal is to use his training in Shaolin kung fu to protect his family and nearby villages from the roaming bandits that disrupted his own childhood. But nothing Le learned while studying at the Shaolin temple can prepare him for his final altercation. A stirring debut novel, propelled by adventure, romance, temptation, spirituality and family relationships, The Silent Tear will leave readers thirsting for more from this gifted new writer.

Within these pages you will find another 103 original pieces written by me between July 2017 and October 2019. During this time, I lost my Father Michael McCarthy to the dreaded cancer as well as his sister and my dear Aunt, Shelagh Barnard, so I would like to dedicate this book to their memory. Some dear friends have also suffered with loss and I have included many poems written for them, some at a request for a eulogy type piece. Other poems were inspired by world events or just a photograph, [the latter usually inspired my war pieces].
