The genesis of this poetry collection includes years of travelling and an internal journey leading to a serene California garden. The map of the stages on the journey is created by the appearances of six angels: Amor, the angel of romance; Eros, the angel of desire; Eloe, the angel of sorrow; Thanatos, the angel of death; Ellenai, the angel of consolation; and Sophia, the angel of timeless wisdom. Eros and Thanatos are Greek twins; Amor is their baby cousin. Eloe died of sorrow and Ellenai carried her on his wings in Juliusz Slowacki’s romantic drama, Anhelli. Sophia needs no introductions, since she is the wise Queen, the best friend of Rumi and Christian mystics. Nature mysticism is captured in vignettes of words (Interludes and the In Passing series) and images (44 color photographs of Southern California trees, flowers, rocks, and mountains). The author, Maja Trochimczyk is a Polish-American poet, music historian and non-profit director based in Los Angeles.
