IN SEARCH OF WISDOM by JOY CHELLEW

http://poeticachristi.org.au/WP-PC/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/In-Search-of-Wisdom.jpg

A wonderful collection of poems giving pause for thought, each reflecting a rich background of a life lived with God. They speak of life’s joys and struggles expressed in words that resonate in our daily living.

Grand themes do have their place in literary works, but good poems are more often the result of carefully observed ‘spots of time’, to use Wordsworth’s term. Being attentive to these moments in our lives, moments when we see the wonder of God’s creation in the world around us, is an aptitude that gifted poets develop. They observe what many often miss, divine glory revealed in the small things of life. This collection contains many such poems.
