“This book will appeal to anyone interested in life – anyone not concerned about material things, such as dreamers and creative writers,” Hodgson says.

Poet RJ Hodgson invites readers to slow down and enjoy life’s winding path with his new poetry collection, “A Gathering of Journeys” (published by AuthorHouse)

Hodgson’s book is a collection of his journeys, both literal and figurative. He discusses places he has lived, his travels, his encounters with others and dreams he has held dear. Hodgson says many of the poems first developed as he was driving country roads reflecting on his life. The poems have a nostalgic element as Hodgson recounts travels that began when he was just a boy.

“This book will appeal to anyone interested in life – anyone not concerned about material things, such as dreamers and creative writers,” Hodgson says.

An excerpt from the poem “A Gathering”:

“All of this is honest.
The people are real,
the places exist
only the dreams
or fantasies skirt
the edge of unreality
wrapped in shadows
of muddy gray memory”
