Valentine A. Molloy’s new book, “Spiritual Vagrancy: and the Art of Skipping Lightly” (published by Balboa Press), arrived in its present form almost by accident. “Over the years, I’ve scribbled bits of poems here and there,” Molloy explains, “and while trying to impress a lady, I put about 20 poems together and was astonished when she returned those poems in a startling waterfall of words. This presentation startled me, to see my words displayed in such a chaotic yet evocative manner. She was the first deep voice of encouragement.”

Sometime later, while in Glastonbury, Molloy found himself inspired to write more poetry, eventually realizing her collection had expanded to a body of work that could be presented in book form.

“Spiritual Vagrancy” is a book of poems on life’s reflections, insights, wonderment and contradictions, engaging readers in a shared space of questioning and critical appraisal of their lives and the world around them.


Scattered, lost, found again
in you in Glastonbury
I sing and dance in acumen
you are my true discovery
My greatest surprise, love actualized
this destiny and recovery
You and I plus dragon sky
at home in Glastonbury
