Illuminations

19 Poems and 1 Story

This collection captures the wonder of the act of creation, the burst of excitement associated with the birth of the new, and the challenges and sacrifice involved in bringing inspiration to fruition. Reflecting on the impact of the challenge of the new, in both the material and spiritual worlds, several of the poems refer to the advent of the Báb, the 19th-century Prophetic figure, whose contemporary message inspired and challenged a sacrificial response on the part of those who embraced His Cause.

"Like grass bursting through broken sidewalk, June’s vigorous words strain to reach skyward—shoving, shouldering, insisting their way up. Gleaming with image, scent, and sound, new ideas and high purposes break through our thoughts, investing our hearts directly with the ideas she intends. And there they linger hauntingly, lifting our spirits toward heaven."
