Finding the mysterious in the mundane, the sacramental in the so-called ordinary, The Sky’s Window offers a sideways glance, a fleeting glimpse, of the love unknown behind all things. Some written for public reading and some for solitary reflection, these are ‘lines and lyrics in search of a numinous now’. They explore the everyday ‘with a hunch that it contains more than itself’, the hope that a prayer can become a poem and a poem can be read like prayer.

"The Sky's Window" So it’s taken me a while to get round to reading this but now I have I can give it the thumbs up. Why would it matter that I like it? Well no reason really, except that I teach poetry to teenagers and once you get into poetry it’s as great a way to state a case as any. This book has an Emily Dickinson-like preoccupation with death and what’s next splattered with some light-hearted perceptive moments that keep us from heading towards the light and affirm the life we’re in. This is accessible, fun and sometimes serious - a good read.
"religious poetry" The reference to George Herbert the Metaphysical poet in the introduction is a strong hint of the content. This book should be popular, it is witty and clever, if a little taxing as Herbert is with his conceits.
"What light through yonder..." Some beautifully composed poetry in here, full of ideas that have me thinking and re-reading passages over again, and shall no doubt stay on my bed side table for a while to come. Highly recommended.
