The natural world comes alive in Charles Burack’s luminous collection of poems. The poet meets trees, flowers, birds, spiders, cats, seals, and other wondrous and endangered creatures as equals. They share their wisdom and beauty, love and fear, humor and suffering and inspire in him profound ponderings, playful antics, and startling realizations. The poem entitled "I Am" won first prize in the international Songs of the Soul Poetry Contest. Other poems depict the mysteries of human love, loss, death, and celebration.
"The poems assist us in recovering our gift of seeing the world through the eyes of glory and numinosity and reverence again." -Visionary theologian and author, Matthew Fox
"Charles Burack enlarges his vision-and ours-to praise the intimate and the immense, illuminate the vertical stillness of trees, and celebrate the green light of the world around us." -Artist and author, J. Ruth Gendler
"Charles Burack's poems pulse with divine mystery and kaleidoscopic consciousness. His passionate verses spring from a soul in communion with a mystic, sacred cosmos." -Speaker and author, Drew Dellinger
