Delighted to have a new collection of poetry for the bicentennial year, almost edited. These were some of the comments back from Beta readers. They also offered some great constructive critique as well to improve the work. I thank them so much for their time, guidance and beautiful words.
Will be sharing some of these poems for the first time in public on the opening night of Illumine
Comments on June’s new collection
I enjoyed the stream of consciousness. Some of the poems reminded me of Rabindranath Tagore’s work. I related to the references to Holy Spirit and reference to Joseph in poems like Art as a Gift of the Holy Spirit and Dear Artist.
Very deeply felt and flowing verse, reminding me of thought patterns in the Eastern spiritual tradition. The Poetry Bird / Swirling, Almost Something / Prince of Peace / The Dreamer each struck a chord in me, seeming particularly gentle and transcendent.
Wow! This work is illuminating, smooth, cool and smart! Real smart! The pieces that really resonated with me were The Poetry Bird, Poet’s Tree, Dear Artist, Art as a Gift of the Holy Spirit, First Light, Declaration, Dawn Breakers and In Faith.
I LOVE this book. So many gems – I particularly like The Dreamer.
