On the Seventh Wave - Br David Hodges
A seventh collection of poetry reflecting the monastic life of prayer in an island setting. Seascapes, the island flora and fauna, the flight of birds, liturgy and contemporary issues all provide material for the poet's pen.
Praise for his previous volumes:
“ . . . . . As ever, his poems evoke very sharply the physical environment, the rain and spray and wind and sun of the Atlantic; and they consistently steer us from the bracing weather of this coastal territory towards that other interior territory of the wind and sun of grace, leaving us on the coast of our humanity, invited into the depths . . .
“ . . . . . an outstanding poet with wide appeal . . .”
Taras Miles, The American Benedictine Review
“ . . . . . poetry that is both accessible and profound . . .”
Esther de Waal
