“This new age marks the beginning of a new world thought. This new
thought is a new cosmic concept of man’s value to man. The whole world
is discovering that all humanity is one and that the unity of man is real –
not just an abstract idea. Humanity is beginning to discover that the pain
of every man hurts every man, and conversely, that the uplift of every man
lifts every man.” – Walter Russell 1871-1963
” May, Living Love, uplift you too.”- Liam Kennedy 1957
“It’s Love that makes the world go around!”
How often have we heard these words? Yet, this is and remains valid for us all. The poetry spread across these pages of ‘Finding Love’ continues as my endeavour to explore the beautiful and enigmatic experience of Love in its endless aspects. We apply the idea of Love to many things other than the emotional; by doing so, we intrinsically connect our highest emotion to all our experiences. We lift Love into the experiential evaluation of our human condition, yet in a materialistic world, Love cannot be bought or manifest as an object. It remains an expression of our nature. My task as a poet has been to explore a multitude of avenues through which we pass in the course of our lives, capturing brief moments and ideas, thoughts and metaphors in the language of poetry. Each of you as a reader will, in your way, respond, resonate or react to a poem in your way, taking or leaving the ideas a poem carries. This book contains the infinite message of Finding Love, which you will also discover.
