    [synopsis] => Spiritual Poetry is a reflection of a ten year spiritual and not-so-spiritual period in my life.

It spans a Silent Retreat through the Sahara Desert with the Poem, 'I Am'

It also contains poetry that tells tales of my travels and experiences such as 'Junkie'

'Food' reminds me of the Tibetan Buddhist ritual of leaving the dead out in nature for the vultures to eat.

I've just read 'God is Dead' again at a time when I am just starting to read Neitzsche.

'God King' is me doped up on too many Buddhist retreats and profound Buddhist books.

Oh wow so was 'The Fabric of Existence'.

I just read 'Fiery Tiger's Tails' after many years.

'The Piper' is for my father and now in hindsight he has passed away and stands as a great testament to his skill as a musician.
'Rotterdam' is just Rotterdam what can I say.

'Collateral Damage' is based around a news story about a soldier that was charged with murder.

'Rise' is cool as I started out practising Zen with the Deshimaru lineage.

'Africa' and 'The River' are kind of romantic stories either about the continent Africa and its continuing struggles and also 'The River' is just the passing of time.

'Child Soldier' is a reminder of early childhood struggles.

With 'Solitary Pilgrim' I end up in the desert again. If I have the courage I will die in the desert just before my time. An astrologer told me I would die at the age 78 so I have a rough idea of when I am supposed to leave.

My poetry begins in the desert and ends in the desert where Christ found his soul.
