What does it take to grow deep at the root? Withstand separation and loss without losing hope? Have enough internal strength to keep growing towards the light when the way seems barred by impenetrable obstacles? How do we develop the character which, at the end of our lives, shows us to be more vibrant than in all our green years? And, in view of the terrifying specter of the Future Unknown, can God really turn it all to Good? These are questions pondered in this book. If I Have Seen is a collection of the best poems of Carolyn Wing Greenlee, Lake County Poet Laureate #3, plus her commentary on the stories behind them and the ways she used structure, punctuation, and other aspects of form to convey the meaning of the poem.

This adventure will please readers with plenty of nail-biting action, realistic heroes (spiderwebs, capes, etc. are not needed), romance, sorrow, suspense, and battles. Become totally involved with the intriguing Mei, the brilliant Dr. Gransom, and their much-loved charges, Tran and Bobby, as they attempt to overcome their pasts and forge their futures. Will the Zenith Colony survive, or will greed and the craving for power once again ruin another world?
