Summary

This is a collection of mystical poems and humorous, irreverent, and insightful tales about the challenges and rewards of a spiritual life that is not intended as an escape from the world but as a way of embracing more fully the human experience. Ultimately, they are about the joy of coming home to oneself.
 
The initial idea of "A Gift of Love," published by Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press in 2019, came to me in the long hours of inevitable wakefulness after drinking a healthy dose of San Pedro medicine in November of 2018. By dawn I had all the contents a handful already written and many others just in my head. This new volume, "A Greater Gift of Love," includes those original writings from "A Gift of Love" plus many more texts written in June and July of 2019 after a shamanic dieta with the Toé plant, Brugmansia Suaveolens, in the Amazon jungle and again in the first weeks of the Coronavirus pandemic in March and April of 2020.
 
This is truly a gift of love from me as well as everybody involved in this project. It is also a gift of love from all the energies whose wisdom has inspired many of these writings.
 
May these writings inspire you along the Journey of Life, and if they manage to make you remember some vital things you might have forgotten along the way and make you chuckle on a handful of occasions, then it was well worth everybody's while.

    Keats. The name is synonymous with great romantic poetry and great romantic poets.  A short life but a legacy of works that few if any can rival.  And of course his end was to be tragically romantic.  Keats was returning one night to his home in Hampstead when he coughed.  He coughed a single drop of blue blood upon his hand and said ‘I know the colour of that blood, it is arterial blood, it is my death warrant, I must die. And so it was that tuberculosis took its slow devastating hold.  He moved to Rome hoping the warmer climate would help but died at age 25 in 1821.

    Denise Levertov’s Poems 1960-1967 brings together all of the poetry first published in The Jacob’s Ladder (1961), O Taste and See (1964), and The Sorrow Dance (1967).
    Denise Levertov’s Poems 1960-1967 brings together all of the poetry first published in The Jacob’s Ladder (1961), O Taste and See (1964), and The Sorrow Dance (1967). This new compilation, beginning where her Collected Earlier Poems 1940-1960 (New Directions, 1979) left off, shows both a refining of the poet’s craft and a widening of her concerns.” We are living our whole lives in a state of emergency,” she wrote in 1967. Levertov’s staunch antiwar stand is reflected here in such poems as “Life at War” and “What Were They Like?” with what Kenneth Rexroth called “the special luster of a sensibility that never sacrifices humaneness to intensity.” Side by side with her poetry of protest is that of celebration—“Song for Ishtar,” “Come into Animal Presence,” “ Luxury”—and tolerance for “The Mutes” uttering “those groans men use/passing a woman on the street…to tell her she is female” as well as for “The Ache of Marriage.” Here also are a meditation “During the Eichmann Trial,” “Olga Poems” (a sequence in memoriam), and “Say the Word,” the poet’s first published story.
