And yet we are taught to experience life as thick. When we move intentionally through the thickness that surrounds us and perceive Light, we can begin to punch peep-holes into and through Time.
I, as poet, live a solitary 4-P journey with the partners of Prose, Poetry, Photography and Prayer. In my journey of Time and Light, I’ve learned that I can free myself from the ballast of ordinary Time and soar in the Light. This is Time Travel for me. The most redemptive partner of my four is poetry. The process seizes me, and I become consumed by the emerging poem until it is complete. Poetry and prayer are closely related, at times with a loss of boundaries. I have written poetry since I was an eight year old girl on the Canadian prairies. I simply cannot imagine life without poetry.
Orchids and Neurons is an exploration of poetry as molecular and metaphysical, as highly musically-patterned and ontological. The poet is a simply a medium used in a complex process.
In this recent body of work, may you discern my process and see yours.
