This book provides an analysis of life as viewed by it's Author. Themes in the verses include 'self concept' and 'self awareness' whilst exploring opportunities that lie just beyond the horizon, within sight but just outside reach. On a more light hearted note, it contains some verses of romance and a tongue in cheek view of daily life. It encourages the reader to look beyond what is clearly visible and contemplate the murky depths and velvety twists of life. Hence the title.
