The Scroll of the Violin: Poems 4 By Jim Bennett
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Poetry is about experience. What it means to be alive and mortal is explored here. A range of philosophy, religion, belief and unbelief; religious poems, atheist poems, questioning poems, and... More > answering ones; trial, failure, success, relationships, and joy. There are mirrors, sonnets, rondeaux, rhymed irregular, haiku, and blank verse. The title poem was a satisfying one to write; I had tried this concept in other ways before pulling this version together. As for religion, I am convinced that there is deep value in all beliefs. Perhaps in some sense every religion is true. Or, to slightly misquote Richard Dawkins, if there is a God out there, it could be a lot bigger and more complicated than what's in an easily stated religious description. As always, ambiguity may be present and it is deliberate. Some poems will benefit from second and third readings. You'll figure this out, as these poems were written for us, and that includes you.< Less
