Once upon a time, I had cable TV. Cable TV is an awesome tool for filling in the silence, particularly when background noise is needed for when I work on my writing.
Whenever I needed a break from my thoughts and the glow of the computer monitor, I would turn towards the other illuminated screen - and during one of my many crazed writing sessions, my eyes grazed from one screen and fell upon him…..
This collection of poetry is a cleansing and transformative journey that takes us from rage to love with a depth of emotion and beauty in words that is breathtaking. The first part, ‘Rage,’ communicates the rage and anger caused by injustice, in immediate and visceral ways. The transition into ‘Making’ has all the mess and beauty inherent in the seasons of autumn and spring. After the rage, after the making, we have ‘Love.’ And the sweetness, caring, and compassion of these poems is a soothing balm after the rage. Yet, it also underscores that deep love, more than anything, fuels rage over injustice.
You won’t regret buying this book of poetry!
