Poetry is the bridge that crosses from one heart to another. It is the voice that you find when you least expect it, calling you to come back to yourself. A life can turn on a single line of poetry – I know mine has.
These poems are an invitation to journey into yourself and then into the world. They fall into two sections. The first is an interior enquiry, where you rediscover the path to Self. The second examines and questions some of the ways we encounter the world.
Wait for the silver bird
To nestle into your neck
Rubbing its head against your cheek,
Until your sould ignites
With skies and mountains,
Seas and restless rivers –
And a path – not visible
From the sitting place.
