Steps In Life - 2014
If verse reflects a sense of the poet’s being, it can echo a sense of place as well. That is the case here, for “Steps in Life” indeed bounces back to readers the long and winding path Roy Johnston has taken to reach the place where he resides today: the bucolic state of Oregon, out here near the nation’s upper left edge.
- David R. Newman, Writer
Selected Poems from Steps In Life
Roy K. Johnston is a 21st century renaissance man whose intellectual curiosity takes him on a wandering journey through many disciplines and experiences, where asking questions and observing cultures, circles him back to a sense of the universe and the present.
