by Al Lauer
Spirituality, war, and love-these are three of the most complex and widely discussed concepts in the human language. With bold and personal conviction, Al Lauer tackles each one in his book of poetry, Buried Treasures. In it he encourages readers to take a look at the world in which we live and work to make it better by believing in Jesus, cherishing the power of love, and striving to end war.
In the last section, he draws from childhood experiences to celebrate family, friendship, and "the good old days." Sometimes dedicating specific poems to certain people in his life, Lauer crafts poems easily accessible to many readers of different backgrounds and experiences with his vivid imagery and captivating rhythm in Buried Treasures.
