Ceremonies of the Spirit
travels a spiral from infatuation to consecration.
Ceremonies has been called "gorgeous", "exquisite", "flirty", and "joyous work that should be celebrated...engrossing, vibrant, honest, theatrical, mystical, lyrical, poignant, passionate, expressive, ceremonial, heart-achieving, soul-renewing..."
Here are poems that are living, breathing things; that invite us into them, welcome us into their elegant, ethereal dance, and walk us across the threshold into sanctuary where we look inward, feed the soul's spark, commune with enlightenment, and transform.
--Michael Parker, Oranges & Sardines
Ceremonies of the Spirit takes us on a journey from surrendering the things—and people—we love, to being transformed as a result of that process. The poems in this collection are rich with images that ...remind us what it’s like to be human. --John Medeiros, author of Couplets for a Shrinking World
