Publisher's Summary

"Words can be like drops of rain on the soul, a life giving force. Rain replenishes the earth as our days are challenged by drought..."

James Coburn shares with you his first published volume of poetry in "Words of Rain", a collection of poems of the inner spirit in touch with the universal self that transcends the struggle of life. Written out of a need for self discovery, Coburn celebrates the beauty of life's journey, but also explores the value of relationships, whether it be self revelation through the loss of a loved one with Alzheimer's disease or the blessing of friendship. In contrast, "Oklahoma Lynching" reveals man's inhumanity through injustice. Coburn's early memories of desegregation are as a young boy riding a school bus in Oklahoma City.

This collection of Words of Rain looks to the horizon of possibilities, giving dimension to the subtext of life. It is a testament of hope evident in the delicacy of a flower or in the peaceful contemplation found when walking across a rural country bridge.
