By Michael H. Hanson
Poetry, in its purest form, gives depth and charm to such eternal mysteries as nature, romantic love, and tragic loss. In this beautiful collection, Michael offers a compelling invitation to join him in his explorations of life, love, and memory. Cozy up to Autumn Blush for a lyrical and enjoyable read.
The limited edition of Autumn Blush includes an autographed copy of Autumn Blush in hardcover with a beautiful Dust Jacket and a lovely bookmark with a sweet charm and tassel attached.
The son of a U.S. Army Sergeant and a Nurse, Michael H. Hanson is the fourth of five children and was born in New York State’s Northcountry, a vast landscape of rivers, forests, and farms. After a short stint in the U.S. Air Force, Michael attended Syracuse University, where alongside his filmmaking activities he found a few spare moments to study creative writing and poetry. He graduated from the Newhouse School of Public Communications with a degree in Film Production. A transplanted New Yorker, Michael acquired dual-citizenship with his name being entered into Ireland’s Foreign Births Entry Book. A haunted Sagittarian, he presently resides in NJ where he edits engineering society journals for a living, and occasionally dabbles in genealogy research and collecting impressionist and plein air oil paintings. Michael spends his free time spinning both tales of the fantastic, and introspective poetry, in his small but cozy garden apartment.
