    Tim Kavi's Emerging Goddess offers an extended poetic engagement

    Tim Kavi's Emerging Goddess offers an extended poetic engagement with the sacred feminine on a variety of existential planes. Many of the shorter poems swirl recursively around the long poem "twisted roads; love's triumphant will," an emotional core of the work in which the speaker narrates the process and motivation for his acceptance of the Goddess. In this poem and others--like "Goddess of the Lake"--the poet plays with his intimate knowledge of the face of China's landscape and incorporates its mythology into the structure of his song. Kavi also blends Greek, Japanese (see "Benzaiten Aphrodite"), Abrahamic, and Mayan mythologies into a truly pantheistic and cosmopolitan vision of acceptance.

    Many of Kavi's poems are paratactic in structure, analogic of the speaker's desire to shed ego and converse with his Muse sans artificiality or a restrained movement of thought. The octave of couplets in "Gentle Loving One," however, demonstrates a tightening up and is indicative of the book's range and variety. Perhaps recalling Keats on rhyming as mimetic of the mirroring that takes place during a kiss, in "the bridge" Kavi uses a triad of stanza-ending rhyme to emphasize the Goddess's unifying capacity: "walking/ across/ the abyss// was more/ precarious/ than the/ surety/ of your kiss// that/ brought/ me across/ the oceans/ to your bliss" Each stanza walks across the white space--mimic of the abyss--to find completion in thought and sound. In "Romantic Poets" the speaker declares "I am only a poet/ in your embrace . . . for without you/ there is no rhyme."

    Embraced by the Goddess, "all/ former/ dualities/ pass away" ("Lovely Woman: what goddess you are!"). In Emerging Goddess, Kavi implicitly takes his place among monistic artists like Whitman, Nietzsche, and Robert Graves. He may tip his hat to Whitman's "I Sing the Body Electric" at the start of "Goddess in You," as the speaker watches a singing manifestation of the divine. One of Kavi's strengths is his ability to occupy all registers of meaning, and poems like "Beautiful dresses" offer earthly, lustful, unabashed complements to the platonic ones. Indeed, throughout the book Kavi creates a dialectical interplay between Goddess/goddesses, spirit/body, myth/history, time/space, etc., and then entertains as he transcends the dichotomies. These poems are palliative and hopeful, moved by a sensitive and loving mind
