In his third installment to his line of poetry following “Look & See Me” and “Fading Footprints,” published author Raymond Cooper continues a poetic exploration of his philosophy and feeling about love and living.

“Listening to the Quiet” (published by Trafford Publishing) echoes a man’s search for the elusive peace and contentment. Cooper takes readers on a journey through time rather than place. The people and places he experienced lay the foundations for many of his poems.

As with Cooper’s previous works, “Listening to the Quiet” allows readers to travel to a place that sometimes can only be found between a thought and a dream. With simple illustrations and striking images, this book should reach out and touch a feeling in every reader. Words, both happy and sad, all mingle to create a book of poetry people will read again and again.

Through his book, Cooper hopes to leave readers with, “the ability to find that peace and contentment, or at least the time and the courage to keep on looking.” For more details, readers may visit
