Again and again, in Denver Welte's exquisite Dew Drops, poems startle us
into awareness of the understated, the nearly always invisible and the
marvelous; those aspects of life that come under the rubrics of loneliness
and joy. Welte combines a light lyricism with a postmodern sensibility for life.
This collection was gathered from a one time weekly blog that appeared over four years.
They are arranged in date order rather than by theme, so that you may
witness the poet's growth.
The Author Speaks
I wrote many of these poems when in the beginning stages of my recovery from alcohol.
A recovery that was made possible because of my supportive, loving family.
I wrote these poems to reflect rather than regret.
I've grown and changed in many ways.
I let go of my addictions and became a mother to my amazing son.
My life is something I am now truly grateful for.
