"My Fingers Dig" reflects one of my major life-time/poetic themes....a poem that not only cuts close to home, but also reflects some of the attributes that I admire most about the human spirit. To quote Robert Frost, "The Tuft Of Flowers": " 'Men work together', I told him from the heart, 'Whether they work together or apart.' "
