Descripción

The natural world comes alive in Charles Burack's luminous collection of poems. The poet meets trees, flowers, birds, spiders, cats, seals, and other wondrous and endangered creatures as equals. They share their wisdom and beauty, love and fear, humor and suffering and inspire in him profound ponderings, playful antics, and startling realizations.

"Walt Whitman wrote of 'leaves of grass, ' and Charles Burack sings of 'leaves of light.' Burack weaves nature with science and religion and the wisdom that creation speaks to us whether walking in the woods or eating forbidden foods or hanging out with cats. His poems assist us in recovering our gift of seeing the world through the eyes of glory and numinosity and reverence again." --Matthew Fox, author of Confessions, Original Blessing, and One River, Many Wells

"To choose praise is not a simple choice in our fragmented, cynical time. In Leaves of Light Charles Burack enlarges his vision-and ours-to praise the intimate and the immense, illuminate the vertical stillness of trees, and celebrate the green light of the world around us." --J. Ruth Gendler, author of The Book of Qualities and Notes on the Need for Beauty

"Charles Burack's poems pulse with divine mystery and kaleidoscopic consciousness. From the ecstasy of love to the elements of the living world, his vision burns and shines like sparks rising up to the stars." --Drew Dellinger, author of Love Letter to the Milky Way

Leaves of Light - Charles Michael Burack

OPEN TO YOU

In prayer and

meditation

I keep hearing

I am to open

to your

presence

wisdom

and love

in all things

at all times

and not to walk

a single

narrow

path

THE DIVINE MARRIAGE

Let us walk together, my beloved,

toward God, with God, in God,

deeper and deeper into Unity,

Each of us a guide, a witness,

a friend and fellow traveler,

a mate and muse on the path of Love.

Let us surrender to the Presence

in each other and bow heads

and anoint toes with kisses and tears.

Let us guard the Pearl of our souls

and drink deep and long the Life

ever flowing from our inmost Heart,

Both of us Beloved’s adoring

servants, ecstatic with boundless

service, dancing wildly into night

intoxicated on wine of Eternity

until we collapse in twined arms

and sleep the deep peace of Bliss.

O come, my beloved, come come

soon for the hour is late

and our hearts open and ripe

to drown as one in One.

ALL IN THE SAME MOMENT

Buddha fountain bubbles

Prayer wheel rings

Heater booms on

Power saw buzzes

Meditation legs ache

All in the same moment

MT. MADONNA REDWOODS

I

Nine young redwoods

circling remains

of mother tree,

her body charred

wishbone

ten-feet high.

Children born

from maternal ashes

like a flock

of arboreal phoenixes.
