One Sweet Moment

One Sweet Moment

By Bruce Meyer

There are moments in life that are poignant and memorable. Such brief glimpses of understanding are what make life worth living. In One Sweet Moment, Bruce Meyer recalls his childhood, honors poets who have made those instances of insight meaning, recalls the artists who have attempted to capture them in their work, and recalls the grief and joy of living. Life, Meyer tells us, is the sum of many moments from the bittersweet to the joyful, and in poems that are memorable moments in their own right, continues to explore the experience of being alive.
