THE FROST CABIN
About the Book
THE FROST CABIN is an integrated collection of intimately spiritual poems by amid the authors turbulent years between 2001-2003 . "During that time I was getting divorced, lost all my possessions,fighting for custody of my son,sheltering my homeless daughters and publishing my first music CD Zumaster (www.bruceoatway.bandcamp.com)"
We lived (survived) in a tiny uninsulated cabin high in the Malibu mountains where we chopped wood and carried water...literally. It was cold and frosty and even snowed a few times.
Spirit kept us alive; that, and the love we found in each other as a new family.
The book is small, the poems rather short, but each word reverberates with intensity of purpose and hopefully will bring you the reader comfort on those frosty nights at the edge of the ethereal.
