There is an emotional immediacy which invites everyone to respond (or not) to life experiences and events. That response might be ever so simple or grand. A poet is aware and awake to these responses. He/she when stirred by passion finds a soulful desire to record in creative language what the poet finds within the response.
Beginning with the dedication, Jan Schomp presents a panorama of topics all the way from her first child's cry for God's milk to her own cry for universal peace. The poet reveals the presence of God in the most mundane to find the often neglected presence shimmering in unnoticed glory.
''Searching'' is about finding God in every aspect of life. The reader is encouraged to search within, as he walks with the author in her ''Searching''. Upon these pages the words ring with eloquence and grace in speaking simply about ''what is''.
There is a call in this collection of poems to become conscious of God presence in one's own life and love. The reader will find the sensual imagery of the soul's own ''Searching'' for life, love and meaning.
Enjoy! Read! Wake up! Be!
