"Prompt Response - Poems of 2014" 

As the title of this book indicates, most of 
what I have written during the past year 
has been in response to weekly or daily
poetry prompts provided by the good 
folks and readers of Robert Lee Brewer’s 
Poetic Asides Blog on the web at

As I age, time speeds by and thoughts slow
to a crawl.  Bear with me and I hope you enjoy
the poems of 2014.

Most of my previous books of poetry have a section 
containing spiritual and inspirational poetry in addition 
to sections containing humorous and other secular 
poetry. I have often been asked where to find those 
spiritual and inspirational poems all in one place. This is 
it folks, “All There Is” of my faith based poetry collected 
from my previous books and many new lines of verse as 
well. Enjoy, and God bless you for asking!

with special thanks to the Poem of the Day

Without his help, I would write very little and 
spend all my time quilting or playing games 
on my Kindle. As I have mentioned in other notes, 
I am not a driven poet, but a driven quilter and 
part time poet! Included here are personal reflections, 
thoughts on writing, the world around us, and a giggle 
or two to make you smile.
