“Seated Above, Looking Below” contains about 200 poems that will take you on a journey, a journey that wanders through the seasons of life and ends on some deep spiritual truths. This is Bob’s first published book. Interestingly enough, the book title was inspired by scripture – Eph 2:6 which states “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” This is an incredible piece of scripture because it show’s Gods abundant grace towards us – but note the focus is on God; He raised us up and He seated us with Himself. Also, note the tense of the verse! Read it again!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
“On a summer’s Eve in 1976 I had a spiritual awakening. After weeping through the night I awoke the next morning and heard the birds really singing for the first time. I also felt inwardly enriched. The living waters of poetry began to flow like a river and these poems are the result.”

A Rustle in the Leaves
I heard a “Rustle” in the leaves
An eye-raising peaceful sound
Could it have been an elusive rabbit
Or a snake along the ground
Or maybe it was only the wind
Just giving a seasonal sigh
Through the long dead autumn leaves
Now crisp and brown and dry
Or maybe it was just a squirrel
As he hurries and scurries along
Gathering quickly all of his acorns
Before the winters long
Or maybe it was, a little chipmunk
Or a grackle or a crow
In the forest, I heard a “rustle”
What it was, I don’t really know
