25 Words of Gold is a collection of inspirational verses exploring various and varied aspects of human experience, knowledge, conditions and predicament. There are one hundred poems in this first volume loosely classified into the themes: man and spirit, wisdom and reason, love and life, family and friends, attitude and gratitude, pomp and power. In a society where hate, angst and man's inhumanity to man have attained unimaginable levels; where our time honored values have been thrown to the mud; where greed, avarice, unbridled corruption, nepotism and immorality are recognized as acceptable modes; where leadership is either weak or nonexistent; these poems serve as a voice-the still small voice, redirecting us to the very essence of our existence on earth - our relationship with our creator and with other humans as a precondition to our realizing the world of our dreams. Each poem maintains a unique structure of twenty five words. The poems are presented in a relatively simple diction to make its didactic appeal accessible to a wider audience.
