Produktbeschreibung
Ode to El Camino de Santiago and Other Poems of Journey is a collection of poems written in a variety of forms. The reader will find sonnets, a villanelle, rhyming quatrains, blank verse, and free verse. While the forms are varied, the theme connecting these poems is one of journey. Although, journey is understood as more than mere travel to other places. These poems are journeys of the meditative kind where destination is to be found in reflection, and arrival found in mindfulness. The settings range from a pilgrim's path in Spain in the opening poem to a childhood home in the closing one, and in between are others as far-flung as a refugee camp in Myanmar, a market square in Marrakech, and the rocky coast of Ireland.
