5.0 out of 5 starsA Grounded Wise Woman: Browning speaks with great love and devotion
Reviewed in the United States on August 30, 2015
In Oak Wise: Poetry Exploring an Ecological Faith, Ms. Browning speaks with a great love and devotion which is deeply rooted for her. She has composed and written these lyrics with such care and concernedness. The way these truths are woven together with her innate spiritual wisdom and insight is magical. She calls for us to go within and to transform, to become better stewards and caretakers of our world, and to reclaim the sacred in our daily lives. She speaks of our amnesia and disconnectedness with our Mother. She calls for us to renew our faith in each other, ourselves, and our planet and encourages us to share and care for each other and our natural world with a deeper love and respect. This beautiful book of verse is for anyone who loves poetry journeys and hopes to be more engaged with the world.
This book has been a friend on my bedside table, a deep breath at the end of a hectic day, and an escape to a reality I can almost remember, though from another realm, another body, a simpler time. I miss it already.
This is the author's first of three volumes that she published over the last several years. If you have ever wondered about your connection with nature, or have delved within all your life, this book will provide great insights into the ways in which Ms. Browning approached her search for the spiritual. With the ecological awareness of Thoreau and the Rumi's longing to find the truth, the author has written a book that is part journal, part Celtic shamanic weltanschauung and entirely brilliant. You will be captivated by the imagery, and the message will take you down a forested path that promises an exciting journey. If you are a lover of poetry, or have an interest in naturalistic traditions of Europe then you should definitely add this tome to your bookshelf. Kudos Ms. Browning, I look forward to many more to come.
