“The Whispering Spirit” is a collection of images, thoughts and insights into the heart of a listening poet. The poems between the covers of this book tell the story of laughter, pain, joy and suffering. This collection of poems record a relationship between people, other creatures and living things. Some poems explore how an object such as a piece of fabric, a rock orchid or a spider can poke the spirit and its story must be told. There is humour in many of these pieces of work. There is tragedy and suffering too. Some of these poems have a spiritual insight: a conversation with God, if you will, that troubles my sleep until I write it down. I hope you find “The Whispering Spirit” a vision of the great and the small. I hope you too can heat the beating heart of the world.
