"Nuggets of truth and beauty sprout within our souls." —Teresa Bevin, author of Havana Split
Robert L. Giron has chronicled the journey and subsequent death of his partner. In the simplicity of expressing nature in the haiku form, the prose is a tree, with fertile seeds, in which he has captured the complexity of personal mythology.
