Some of the poems in Intimations of the Soul of a Seeker
are narrative, some are mystical, some both. Short poetic essays are here, and portraits of people. Included are a critique of the Apostle's Creed, notes on our abandonment of Jefferson's final wording of the Declaration, and considerations of time and light relative to Augustine and Einstein. The poems invoke thoughts on bonding with Gobi camel herders, a visit to the prenatal state, acceptance, connections between colored glass and worn-out lives, the mysteries of darkness and light in human experience, and a rule of life (an American antithesis) that reflects Gandhi, the Bahagavad Gita and an integration of the Gita with the Sermon on the Mount. Much else is here. See for yourself.
In his poetry, H. D. sometimes attempts to approach or walk the limn between That which is real and that which is impermanent, or unreal. He recognizes that the limn cannot be crossed by the intellect. Even if H. D. could transcend the limn, he would be unable to express it. By approaching or attempting to walk the limn, H. D. hopes to entice others to join him in the quest to realize the truth of That Which Is.
