Ruminations at Twilight: Poetry Exploring the Sacred By: L.M. Browning

Published by Leslie Browning
Ruminations at Twilight is an intimate version of the archetypical prodigal child story, transcended from its limited catholic parameters to become a story of humanity itself.

The book is divided into two sections.

In the first section we read the story of the child’s awakening to their betrayal of self and the betrayal of the cherished principles handed down to them by their beloved parents. These poems are an unfiltered record of one’s fearless turning within, to confront the wrongs they have committed against their better selves and the sacredness of this world. In these pages there is a difficult coming to terms with the poor choices one can make; the poems grapple with the shame, guilt and remorse that one bears after committing such acts, and ultimately meditates on the internal resolution that rises, spurring one to set out on a search for forgiveness.

In the second section, the story of the prodigal child goes forward still as, after awakening to their own betrayal of Self, the child awakens to the greater betrayal of humanity—in terms of our betraying what it is to be human. After returning home to ask for forgiveness from their father and mother the child sets out to reconcile and reconnect with the Divine Father and the Mother Earth, both of whom were left scarred and betrayed by humanity’s detrimental modern ambitions.

Asserting that the sacred lives in what is ordinary and the Divine is found amongst the green of nature, the poems within Ruminations at Twilight bring a message of appreciation for the worth of what surrounds us. Relevant, insightful, candid and revealing, these verses give a unique perspective on the age-old questions. The story told takes place on an intimate scale yet at the same time a world-wide scale; for within this story of one individual’s realization and redemption we are told that of all humanity’s.

Advanced Praise for Ruminations at Twilight

“L.M. Browning’s religious fervor reminds one of Emily Dickinson’s in its intensity and unorthodoxy: it bypasses dogma to reach the heart of the divine.” -Rennie McQuilkin, author of The Weathering.

“Reading Ruminations at Twilight is like tugging on the loose string-end of the great ball of twine that is our human condition. One must be brave to take up such a journey. One must be willing to “see”, Browning sees knows, and offers a much-needed vision to the rest of us. These poems guide us through the terrain of the “common wound” [our disconnection from the divine, the earth, each other, ourselves] and carry us into a place of healing, anticipation and realization of the prospect of being our fullest selves in a torn world that needs us to be exactly that.” - Frank Owen, author/creator of the online poetry experience NEKYIA.POETRY

“Ruminations at Twilight is a powerful cry of yearning for the sacred. These lines of poetry are Browning’s fearless entry into the global conversation; a heartfelt plea on behalf of the sacred Earth whose words run like rivers into the Great Watershed of the Earth’s dreaming. May her poetry inspire your own plunge into the currents.” – Jason Kirkey, author of The Salmon in the Spring (*Winner of the IPPY Book Award / Mind-Body-Spirit Category)
