Words are a Holy Fire Words surged from the pen staining, soaking everything like spilled paint. Wood pulp thirsty in a state of mad-eyed hunger. Paper ravenous for a glorious taste, elated to gobble up and digest the things that time can't erase. Don't you know? Words are a Holy Fire, spread from the Word himself. Infused with the power of desire to transform, to turn over the world upon itself. To burn away the dead timber, embers eager to make way for the new. On its charred remains, plant shoots come bursting through. Oh, yes listen; I tell it true! Words are a Holy Fire with more power than the doers who do. For they are not forgotten by the fragility of memory but cling to time like glue. Justin Farley
My first chapbook of collected poems is available now! I hope you find encouragement in the poems but also a validation that the spiritual life is not all sunshine and rainbows. We all struggle. We all have periods of questions and/or doubt. But it is the yearning that keeps us coming back for more and allows us to experience joy.
You can purchase either on Amazon or on my own bookstore (it is cheaper and has free shipping on my store) and is available on the Kindle and in paperback.
