1995-1996 by Satsvarupa dasa Goswami. That a Krishna conscious poet wants to express siddhanta is axiomatic, but there's something more: poetry written in the modern American idiom just says what is--in common language. It doesn't try to improve on life's experiences, even those of a struggling devotee. Rather, by expressing those experiences in images, it communicates the devotee's heart. William Carlos Williams said, "It is difficult/ to get the news from poems/ yet we die miserably every day/ for lack/ of what is found there." In our usually pragmatic and busy lives we often fail to recognize our real needs. Poetry can address those needs and heal us. Soft cover, 126 pp.
