“Gordon Burnham is one of the best nature poets writing today. These latest poems of his are among his finest.” ~ Cliff Johnson, Author of "Inner Peace In a Busy World"This second book of one hundred eight poems follows “The Mystical Dance,” expanding on nature, spiritual and mystical themes. "Whispers of Light" aspires to poetry's potential to lift and inspire the heart, mind and soul. These tapestries of words are woven from nature's inspiration and the universal spiritual philosophy of Vedanta from India.Poems can reach deep into our hidden inner chambers to touch and heal. They can pierce the cloud of unknowing to reveal the light of awakening, and unveil the beauty that language can only point to. Poetry, like a fragrant spring morning or a bolt of lightning in a summer sky, captures the mind and gives wings to our thoughts. Nature is the mystical wizard that will open our eyes to miracles if we but look and listen. Truth more astonishing than fairytales and fiction speaks silently and waits for an ear. "A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease"~ John MuirA few words can move us to depths of inspiration. Yet, words themselves can only be pale reflections of what they seek to express. It is that which cannot be spoken, that poetry must be inspired by, and point us to. Why 108 poems? The importance and power of the number 108 was established long ago in India. See: "Significance of 108" at the end of this book.
