“Out of the dreaming dark…
Into the dreaming light…”
Comes our world, in all its beauty and struggle. Sonnets, quatrains and occasional free verse examine sky and earth, flowers, birds, human beings, from philosophers to pub bands and a one-eyed roofer.
Themed around the Bible’s Seven Days of Creation, with glimpses of the Creator, “Out of the Dreaming Dark” is a compassionate and inspiring survey of our complex universe.
The illustrations visualise the poems in a full range of styles and techniques, from watercolours to digital, from the reaches of space to an underground daffodil, with great charm and exuberance.
“A tour de force! . . celebrating joy, beauty and growth” (John Gilham)
“ In the poems we see the link between our own emotional states and experiences, the craft of creation and the spectrum of creation in all its depths and glory.”
