Portal Poems: Perspectives on Aging  

Sheppard Benet Kominars



Senior Years Are the New Frontier in the 21st Century

The moment you pass through this portal, finding a new compass to navigate is a task that must be initiated. Portal Poems offers valuable insights into this new territory in which the Old Rules have changed and new ones need to be discovered. What better way than through the poetry of someone who has lived it.
