The Harbor is a collection of poems about people facing dark trials with strength to turn wariness into peace, love and hope.
It's a book about people with unfinished business, people still heroic enough to make room in their heart for another person.
The book is about bold acts, beautiful, random acts where a helping hand is like fire to comfort a chilly person anguishing.
The book is about affection and admiration animating a person's body with an adventurous soul turning crisis into opportunity.
The book is about people armed with love so fearless it lets the mind's voice whisper, "Even death will have an exit door."
Like a person in rapture the atmosphere of this book seems to say, "Where the road ahead
disappears in chilly darkness, look again. The cordial world not only waits up ahead with her graceful gift, sunrise, she's already here with a great gift, the gift of you.”
The style of Steve Jackson is simple, sweet and satisfying. Beautiful word pattern and enchanting melody in these poems are quite impressive. The chief characteristic in these poems is extreme simplicity of style united with profound emotion. The diction of these poems has almost always musical quality. All these poems reveal the concrete and artistic expression of the poet's various moods and thoughts in emotional and rhythmic language.
