Summary

Bright Star: 12 Poems to Inspire Book 2
 
An illustrated book of inspirational poems about grief, consolation, and carrying on.
 
“Since my mum died I make sure to take time for honouring her and this spoke to that feeling… in those moments [of reading], it’s like she’s still here..” COZY CHAPTERS
 
Night Light As It Rises is the second book in the Twelve Poems to Inspire series, a range of gift books for festivals like Valentine’s and Mother’s Day, and life occasions. These are poems that embrace the pain of grief and mourning, not so much about grief as fashioned of it, and reaching out from it to others experiencing the same emotions.
 
In hard times, poetry helps. It offers an opportunity to reflect on sorrow, find gain in loss, fashion meaning, or experience grace in contemplation. In a group setting, a poetry reading allows everyone present to share a profound moment together and strengthens the bonds between those who mourn.
 
These twelve beautifully illustrated poems inspire consolation for those who are grieving, whether their sorrow is for loved ones left or leaving, for endangered people or our imperiled planet, for personal failures and regrets. Each of the poems explores a different way to hold sorrow and offers a corresponding condolence.
 
The poems do not shy away from suffering but whether considering a dark night of the soul, the hour before dawn or the struggle to keep going, this poet is always reminding us of the transformative power of love and time.
 
The book is divided into three sections: Accept, Alight and Allow. Chosen and arranged by Orna Ross, each poem is appropriately illustrated with a picture from a contemporary photographer or artist.
 
A beautiful gift of sympathy for a loved one in a time of need and for use by therapists, priests, ministers, rabbis, health professionals and palliative care workers who tend to those experiencing loss.

    Poet and musician Gary Barwin both continues and extends the alchemical collision of language, imaginative flight and quiet beauty that have made him unique among contemporary poets. As the Utne Reader has noted, what makes this work so compelling is 'Barwin’s balance of melancholy with wide-eyed wonder.' The Porcupinity of the Stars sees the always bemused and wistful poet reaching into new and deeper territory, addressing the joys and vagaries of perception in poems touching on family, loss, wonder and the shifting, often perplexing nature of consciousness. His Heisenbergian sensibility honed to a fine edge, the poems in this bright, bold and acutely visual book add a surreptitious intensity and wry maturity to Barwin’s trademark gifts for subtle humour, solemn delight, compassion and invention.
     
    'Between the freaky, funny filmmaker Guy Maddin and author Gary Barwin, Canada is producing some of the most innovative creative works of our time.' – Utne Reader

    Night Became Years is poetry in the sauntering tradition of the flâneur. Stefanik loafers his way over sacred geography and explores his own mixed heritage through the lexicon of Elizabethan canting language. Comparing the terminology of fifteenth-­century English beggar vernacular with a contemporary Canadian inner­-city worldview, the poems in Night Became Years unfold as separate entities while at the same time forming a larger narrative on the possibilities of poetry today and the nature of mixed­-blood identity.
