Hope Speaks

Hope Speaks

The poems in this book were written within an idea, a big idea, which is that our culture needs to rethink its entire relationship to the biosphere, to Gaia, and that our poetry should share in that rethinking and refeeling. All the old themes of love and death, beauty and truth, need to be refelt in terms of Gaia and the entire history of the Universe.
