If all the world is indeed a stage and men and women merely players, then The Bloom is the play. Life’s billion year soliloquy and man’s supporting role is told in five parts, the five acts of a play, and the five stages of a growing flower:
Part I The Garden -- the origins of the universe prepare the soil for the evolution of man
Part II The Seed -- the discovery of agriculture and the seed of civilization
Part III The Roots -- one man’s quest from Persia to India to seek the mysteries of mathematics
Part IV The Synthesis -- one woman’s search for light, truth, and redemption in a ruined world
Part V The Bloom -- the blossoming of the journey to the very ends of time
In the ancient tradition of epic poetry, The Bloom is told in a lyrical series of nearly 3,000 lines of poetry; inter-rhyming couplets, a unbroken stream of double-helix verse, the genetic rhyming code of Life’s immense vanquishing of Time.
It is ultimately a spiritual journey, both individual and collective.
