About the Book
The Uninvited Guest is a collection of diversified poems about the mystery and the magic about ordinary daily activities and circumstances of life, the awe and wonder of miracles around us (if we but take the time to see them before our eyes), the beauty of the four seasons, the presence of God throughout the day, the occasional cycles of grief and depression that sometimes accompany our lives and the ways to find strength and courage to handle difficulties that come our way.

A retired social worker, community organizer, teacher and school administrator, Tom Farrell has been writing poetry since his childhood. His poetry centers around his own personal spirituality, his belief in an intimacy with God, his perspective on the world, his empathy for the marginalized and vulnerable amongst us and a deep concern for all forms of life in Nature and in the flesh. He believes all people, in order to stay sane and optimistic (in a world that is often divided by ethnicity, class, religions and age) need to have a good sense of humor, need to see all people as just extensions of "our family' and need to have a caring heart for all of mankind. He now has two books of poetry and according to him they are becoming collectors' items!. Rush to get you copy!
