The blurb on the back:

Anyone who knows what it is to love will tremble in recognition of the truth and beauty on these pages.
This is the voice of a man speaking to his beloved, hoping that somehow she will hear. These are the eyes of a man seeking his beloved in every place where life and beauty dwell. This is the magic of love itself, transforming our world into a place of miracles.
Whenever you think of love, you will think of this book...

Countless millions of people have seen LEONARD NIMOY in his starring roles in Star Trek and other outstanding dramas. Now a vast new audience is discovering him as one of the unforgettable poets of our time.


What can you say? This is beyond comment, beyond analysis, beyond rationality. It's illogical. The only option is to quote:

    Will I think of you?

      Only when I feel
        warm and wanted

    Though once

      I felt I was outside
      looking in
      disconnected
    Watching the world
      go by
photograph by the author

Sheer bloody perfection, mate. With photographs by the author.
