The purpose is to awaken

SLEEPERS IN TRANSLATION:

My belief is that 'The Purpose of Art is to Awaken'. I try to remember this, and reached a new level with this project. I lived near San Carlos, the Apache reservation, and received a poem there....My job is to listen.

The book is 6 X 9, perfect bound, attractive, 125 pages, professional cover; with many new poems to clearly show where I am trying to go with my art.

  


Excerpt

from 'AN EVENING IN SEPTEMBER


I sit in the fading sunlight, scribbling to no one's advantage, unless in some strange way my own, seeking to love this moment without knowledge or naming -- like a man in silent prayer, straddling the edge of a beautiful and profound book, the edge of a world, thinking, not thinking, waiting for the voices to wane.

This is and isn't our world.
Shadows grow among the stately pines,
and I remember other days.

Yesterday I was a boy. And although it may be that his love is the hope of all my tomorrows, today let me
be a man. . .

Tired of being less than I am, I rise, stretching, and gaze across
the far horizon -- the constellations flowing upon the mirror
of my consciousness.

A quarter mile away happy laughter
pierces my regard. . .

Amen, my brothers. Amen my sisters.
Amen, my God.

You alone know what I would give.

Reader Reviews for "Sleepers in Translation"

Reviewed by Kevin Hull 6/20/2010
One of the finest poems I have read in many years. Sincere and touching without being sentimental. Clearly one of our best poets currently writing. Looking for to reading his new novel...
