Native Joy: Poems Songs Visions Dreams by Geoffrey Oelsner begins with the author's pre-birth and early childhood memories, proceeds to poems for his wife and family, then journeys on deep into the twin terrains of Nature and the world of dreams.

This big book of celebration and communion contains sections with topic titles like "Men, Mentors," "Hard Karmic Weather," "Great Mother, Women, World," "Older Brothers: Buddha and Christ," "Visions and Highs," and "U.K." (exploring human and Other realms in Great Britain). A performing singer/songwriter, Oelsner includes a selection of song-lyrics called "Morning Branches."

These poems leave traceable trails into our own innate native joy.
