Crevices of Beautiful Minds, Crevasses of Beautiful Souls

Overview

"The poet as dreamer reenacts the biblical choice in the Garden to gain knowledge, face death, and embrace bodily passions. Then, he shows us in crisp, haunting poems the pain and the wonder that comes from love, friendship and seeking oneself. The poems make us feel our tangled nature, but also how we persevere in seeking spiritual fulfillment.

Overview

"The poet as dreamer reenacts the biblical choice in the Garden to gain knowledge, face death, and embrace bodily passions. Then, he shows us in crisp, haunting poems the pain and the wonder that comes from love, friendship and seeking oneself. The poems make us feel our tangled nature, but also how we persevere in seeking spiritual fulfillment. Lyrical at times, using Greek mythological and Christian figures, biblical references, and modern language, always caught within the tensions between light and dark, these poems trace out the modern path through heartbreak and shaken beliefs towards affirmation of life. They will give you inspiration." -Glen A. Mazis, Professor of Philosophy and Humanities, Penn State Harrisburg and author of The River Bends in Time.

Editorial Reviews

Print Publication - T. L. Cooper
“Crevices/Crevasses opens the heart and the mind with questions of faith and love through the exploration of religion, romance, mythology and human connection. We embark on a journey of self-discovery in thought-provoking poems that take the reader into the depths of the soul and back again. The beautifully written poems fill the heart and mind with insights that challenge, comfort and give hope all at once.” —T. L. Cooper, author of a novel, All She Ever Wanted.
Literary/Film Critic - A. Johnsson
"“While I (an atheist) am not the greatest fan of spiritual literature, I must admit that this is an astonishing poetry collection....the spiritual element gives the poetry a sensitivity that avoids sentimentality and a toughness that avoids intolerance...The combinations of innovation with natural instinct, spirituality with the concrete world..cannot be considered easy to achieve. This is a haunting, emotional, thought-provoking, intelligent, genuine and inspiring body of work.”
Print Publication - K. A. Ghoun Khan.
“Rhythmic verses take advantage of symbols in biblical and classical writing to seek lessons for life. They arouse in the mind the anticipation of an insight that will fulfill the heart, and they rouse in the heart affirmation that faith in the mind is possible. Still, the wisdom of traversing the distance from faith to blasphemy and back again before finally making a home in a politically correct spirituality is both painfully playful and playfully instructive.”
