This second edition of the beloved collection Oak Wise: Poetry Exploring an Ecological Faith features previously unpublished verse, a new ending note from the author that reflects on the personal significance of the title for the author, and finally a new foreword penned by Emmy winning Irish Filmmaker Alan Cooke.
"Talking for Me"
Asserting that the sacred lives in what is ordinary and the Divine is found amongst the green of nature, the poems within Ruminations at Twilight bring a message of appreciation for the worth of what surrounds us. Relevant, insightful, candid and revealing, these verses give a unique perspective on the age-old questions. The story told takes place on an intimate scale yet at the same time a world-wide scale; for within this story of one individual's realization and redemption we are told that of all humanity's.
Fleeting moments of fierce clarity are had when the confusion clears and the gray numbness that hangs about our senses draws back allowing us to see the world and ourselves with sharp relief. Follow author and New England native L.M. Browning in her wanderings across the Northeast, from the solitude of her home along the shore of Connecticut, to the rushing city streets of Boston, to the tall-pine landscape of Arcadia Park in Rhode Island to the quiet edges of Walden Pond.
