Thinning of the Veils

Thinning of the Veils… is a work of spiritual, socially-relevant poetry and memoir. Drawing on personal life experiences, the author weaves a spell of tactile-felt memories that have been instrumental in his growth in awareness. Intermingled with observational looks at patterns of human activity, its poems suggest correlations and differentness uncommonly entertained about conscious and unconscious states.

“OVERCOMING GRAVITY
Life’s cauldron does temper us,
if we can take the heat.
We become steel impervious to harm,
steel that only the fire of wisdom
can melt into perfect equanimity.
And from there we soar
beyond time and space,
from one eternal rush of rapture
to the next
We shall overcome.”
