WONDERMENT –   edited by Leigh Hay and Maree Silver                                                             An anthology of poetry. 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 Wordsmiths 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.                                                        Dr. Peter Stiles, author of ‘Trumped by Grace’.
