Chancing on Sanctity
In a variety of moods and forms the poems in this collection attempt to capture something of the spiritual element that resides in the ore of common experience. They range from sing-song verse to taut lines embodying struggle. In some the everyday breaks into the numinous, in others the sacred is fused with ordinariness, even comedy. Irony has a prophetic edge, and human pain and brokenness, entangled with memory, border a mystical vision.
