about the author

brent asay

I turn 63 years old in a little over a month. I’m a father and a grandfather, and love God, family, and country. I earned a bachelor’s degree and an MSPH from the University of Utah, and a law degree from the Brigham Young University Law School. I am a member of the Utah State Bar and currently work as a mediator in employment-related matters. I am a Utahn, having lived mostly author-brent-asayin Utah.

Through the years I was able to live in and experience other places and cultures. I love spending time with grandchildren. During the warm months I love to get outdoors on my hand-trike. There was a day when I was a dead-eye basketball outside shooter, so I like to think that of all the men who ever struggled with my form of muscular dystrophy and participated in basketball, I was unrivaled as a round-ball player.

about the book

Endless Horizons

It is a book of poetry about nature, places visited, love, family and home, adversity, a life-long battle with muscular dystrophy, and observations of life and society–and other topics inspired by life experiences and learning of a so-far 63 year life span. Through my life I had always wanted to write a book, but not knowing about what.

Then one morning about 9 years ago I woke up realizing I had already been working on a book throughout my life with my poems composed since early college days, and could combine those with newer material to achieve the final product. The target audience is anyone, whether they like poetry or not–anyone who has experienced life. What sets Endless Horizons apart are the relatable descriptions that go under the surface of things, while giving beyond-ordinary meaning to the simple things of life.

book reviews

  • Endless Horizons presents a poet’s optimistic look at what surrounds him as he passes through life. He takes pleasure in persons, places and things, big and small, that touch his soul, and reminds us that we also are surrounded by the beauties and bounties of life – but too often let them pass by with faint notice. I related thoughtfully to his described feelings regarding the signs of late August as changing winds and drifting leaves mark “precious seconds on autumn’s clock ticking away”. His poem’s teach us what we miss in life if we casually observe, and not internalize the beautiful moments that surround us. This is not a book to rush through in reading, but one that calls for introspection at each step of the way.

    Insights into the character of the author, and how he views the world around him.
  • Brent Asay’s book, Endless Horizons, Journey’s within a Journey, is a beautiful collection of thoughtful and moving pieces of poetry. I always enjoy how artists put together words and sentences. I feel his work is a collaboration of his life experiences. Poetry should make you reflect and think and this book will not disappoint.

Excerpts

Excerpt 1

And the wind I feel differently, to an inner pang, As drifting, season-aged leaves playfully brush past me, Precious seconds on autumn's clock ticking away.

Excerpt 2

Then, so restless, they quickly fled from there As though their beeping radar sensors discovered Cooler and roomier shade lazing three trees away.

Excerpt 3

Strawberry row after gardened row Thrived whole at the water's arrival Climaxing their Eden-yearn to grow As gold rays kissed soaked copper soil.
