A poet’s wrenching decision to leave a long marriage inspired this fictional 76-page collection. LIFESCAPES not only signifies a coming event of importance; it marks the flowering of artistic growth and personal renewal.  The series opens as a couple meets through an online personals ad.  Subsequent poems bring up joys yet concerns about a new partner, with the shadow of former romantic disasters in the background. Unsurmountable crises for a marriage begin with a terrible accident. Finally, the sudden onslaught of COVID-19 puts personal problems into a global perspective. With the wisdom of a woman faced with tough realities, she lights a pathway for readers and moves from a story about divorce to one of transformation.
