Hardcover: $45.00

"The Bluebird Is Near" is a collection of the masterworks of poet and teacher, Erjan J. Slavin. In this first tome of his inspired wanderings in the medium of poetry, traversing many... More > different bridges of thought and concept, the poet delights us with a verbal music and grounds us within a framework of metaphor, often quite ritualistically, so as to bring us into the heart of our own experiences, and to deliver us to the immediacy of the moment in which we are at home in ourselves and in the wonder of the life we share.

“The Lost Feather” is a tome of transitions, and of what happens in transit between the plateaus of definitive expressions that took place elsewhere. Underneath the painting of the... More > bluebird that left its traces of blue in the sky beneath the artist’s hand is the painting of what culminated in that moment of certain artistry. The underpainting adds a context for the sure strokes of the finished art, and the back-ends of a process reveal the makings of the meaning that is final as a gesture. In between the moment of the bird’s passing, and the recognition of the color in the air, a feather that is lost in that transitory beauty is found in these pages--something which the polished work could not have given by its very nature as an edition of a work of literature that is said to be complete.< Less
