Poetry

The Great Unknown Certainty is a collection of poems written in the summer of 2022 and published in spring 2023.

From the Back Cover:

"The Great Unknown Certainty is everything we cannot speak. It is the only reality, the unknowing that makes knowing possible, the invisible force that grounds us in our being.

These poems speak to it in the way one can, humming softly into a swirling storm, gently nipping at the Divine Truth lurking in the mists and muds of our unconscious experience of life."

Songs of nights long past

,or nights that might have been

the muse echoing in the artist's ear

...

only to one without imagination

does decision or timing or fate

interfere with all the beauty along the road untraveled

Where words cease to be sufficient, our hearts open in communion

to Divine Language,

to understanding beyond symbols or even metaphor.
