The author hopes this latest collection of poems, "Say Yes To Time", will reveal a positive approach to life, to say "yes" to the evolution of everything. "We have come a long way since the Big Bang and we have so far to go", is her pep talk. We all need to compose on the canvas of existence together, in the very best way our understanding will allow. After publishing her eight books of poetry (Red Daughters in a Foreign Spotlight, Soul Beans, Zoom Lens, Double Decked Nature, Gravel Pit on the Moon, Rocks on the Road, Poems of Gratitude, and Written Rhythms of Space Travel and Earthly Things), the author, Marleen Rita Duckhom, has written yet another moving forward masterpiece, "Say Yes To Time". In this volume of poems, she includes many topics but she resists calling them anecdotes. Although there may be a method to her madness, she may be conveying a message to share her positive approach to looking at our aging solar system and galaxy and arrange that prospect to an evolving perspective of ourselves while we're still here. It is an interesting journey requiring light-hearted attendance in the class called outer space.
