From the Publisher
who bear their wisdom
like a shell –
with a hard
they have learned
to guard themselves
… what they know.
From Germany to California, with stops in Paris, Turkey, and Greece, these poems are a collection of the yearnings within us all – questions asked, answers given, and much that never will.
Still, that love and loss are the greatest gifts, the deepest sorrows one can ever know. And who can say what God is – if finding Him, we are both shattered and fulfilled?
May it be that there is no final “after”…that there may always be something wonderful, rising from the “deep” within.
How Deep The Pain Goes Quiet, After was a winning Finalist in USA "Best Books 2011" Awards, sponsored by USA Book News.
