We need security and shelter within art's four walls When some tragedy and despair in one's life befalls. Where real life at times can seem so harsh and cold, Allow art, with its dimensions, to embrace and hold. When art touches life we are left with questions and very few concrete answers. Why do we live? Why do we die? Why do we invent? Why is the world as it is? What would our lives be like in an ideal world? For years, poets, artists and great thinkers have pontificated on these questions and others, and this rich, vivid collection of poetry offers fresh considerations of the myriad possible answers.
