Poems stashed away on a shelf waiting to breathe, waiting to be resuscitated unlike the romance that once prevailed.
Unexpectedly, with new breath they’re revived, capturing a Poetic Affair as vivid as a Van Gogh.
Each verse a snapshot of a moment in time, a book with a lasting impression and the knowledge that when the romance is over and all that’s left are the words he wrote, there is no better place to be.
A book that engages the reader in way that removes the illusion of the stoic Native.
Rather, it evokes the passion and tenderness of love.
A chronological narrative from the words and inspiration of a master poet to an unbeknownst muse.

My name is Ty and I am from the Nanticoke-Lenape Nation
I am introducing my native American children & and inspirational spiritual books.
I write to give voice to the voiceless,give a name to the nameless, and give a face to the faceless. I write to give identity to those who have hadtheir identity stolen with the stroke of a pen.
These are writings by me starting at the age of 13 in 1976 through 2020.
I know that this book is different from traditional Anthologies. However, I felt that it best represents my
expressions. It is not a mistake that my name is Bright Flower, and this book is a compilation of my
writings as my flower’s blossoms. I chose the name "The Blossoms of Bright Flower" because it
represents my blossoming from when I was a child through life today. I decided to create a colorful array
of pictures to accompany this Anthology. This creation celebrates my Native American heritage as a part
of my expressions.
