In my poetry, I, the writer, search for answers to life's
questions. The Poetry of Life II, sometimes emotional, sometimes
playful, is based on my personal feelings, observations, and
experiences in my life and travels. It is a book about everyday
occurrences, such as love, relationships, hunger, poverty, war,
nature, and death. The poem "Memory" describes lovers separated by
time and distance, while their love remains strong. The poems
"Lover's Prayer," "Lover's Thanks," "Lover's Questions,"
"Response," and "Soulmate," describe the openness between two
lovers. "Celestial" tells of a love that is unattainable. Nature, a
mysterious power in the poems "Cry of the Ancients" and "O'Moon,"
contains secrets of Mother Earth. The poems "Hope," "Faith," and
"Paradise Lost" reminds us that no matter how bad things are, no
matter what humanity does, there is always hope for the "Salvation
of Humankind." Walter N. Davenport Jr. was born in New Orleans. He
