Allen Francis Foley, published poet and photographer, has traveled throughout the State of Maine over the past several years capturing many images of grand scenes and subtle beauty, spectacular mountain landscapes, field and stream photo’s along with rugged seascapes.
In Foley’s Resume you will not read about his personal emergency room of despair. You will not hear how he runs away from life with a gasp, a fainted breath, or a loud homeless cry in the night, fluttering over the unreachable muse of his destiny, his eyes wide open, Colors fade, and a saxophone is played as a reveille call from some far off place asking, “is our spiritual shallow to the privilege’s ordained by some unseen god?
Through homeless nights, and 2 suicide attempts, Foley was surrounded with a “protective whisper.” Passion, Foley’s passion within, was an eccentric voice of shyness, an elixir of life, and an intuition, where writing down his poetic conversations, confessing upon those uncensored pages his unsolicited truth, reminded him he was alive.
In addition to creative endeavors Sgt. Foley has spent a great deal of his time contributing to charitable institutions such as Toys for Tots and Maine Homeless Veterans by participating in and helping to organize fund raising events.
