VICTORIA, B.C. (PRWEB) April 10, 2015
Poet Kevin Patrick has long searched for the answers to the omnipresent questions: “Who am I?” and “What is my life’s purpose?” Inspired by spirit, love and nature, he wrote poetry as a medium for spiritual self-exploration and artistic expression. “Ten Tall Trees” (published by iUniverse) is the result, a collection of free-verses weaving a lyrical narrative – a lucid, spiritual exploration and awakening of consciousness witnessed by the beauty of the changing seasons.
Written in beautiful and natural surroundings from Hope to Vancouver and throughout the picturesque Southern Gulf Islands, Patrick’s poems convey his contemplations and meditations, his expressions and experiences of introspection and love, observations of nature, rural and urban life, even his closest relationships. With these, he shares a spiritual deconstruction of the ego through lyric poetry. In the title poem, “Ten Tall Trees,” he observes nature’s quiet resilience during the cold winter months. The selection “Season of Birthing” celebrates the uplifting energy of new life in springtime. Poems such as “Minuet,” “Minoru Park,” and “Mooji” address autumn and Patrick’s burgeoning spiritual awareness together with his observations of modern pop culture.
With a strong voice, perceptive observations, language play, and an affinity for the natural world, Patrick offers a poetry collection that gives insight into the balance of spirit with the human condition and the beauty of form merged with formless.
