Overview

The Blind Beekeper: Poems

The Blind Beekeeper In this document of poems, this chronicle of a heart that tends to ecstatic discoveries. Rumiesque poet Daniel Moore finds divine radiance and meaning in everything from sad harmonicas and washing the dishes to the wisdom of bees, the formation of diamonds, cobalt blue and the mystery of the day the earth stood still... singing and attempting to sing the perfect music of it every moment.
