If this book has a theme it is that it reflects concerns I have had throughout my life. All the poems were written since my 90th birthday.
From the book:
It’s an odd thought, but can love live beyond those who love?
Our love is so special I don’t want it to vanish when we die. Perhaps there will be echoes, distant voices telling the story of our love to future generations Love should be immortal not tied to our frail existence, free to shine forever, like the morning star or, perhaps, the star of Bethlehem.
Celtic spirituality believes in places and in happenings where the boundary between heaven and earth is thin, where we can almost touch the heavenly realm.
An icon is often used as an example. A new-born in its mother’s arms is another, a flower whose loveliness is more than ordinary, music which transports beyond listening, someone who, despite all reasons not to be, is there.
In all of these the heavenly realm is close to our every day.
One step it seems is all we need. But mortal legs are seldom strong enough to take us there.
