A new collection of poems from Joy Mead – ‘a book of moments, illuminated moments, those times when joy breaks through, when beauty amazes and goes some way towards healing.’
Joy’s poems celebrate what it is to be alive and also, perhaps, what it is to contemplate death. She hopes that each poem is:
Whispering of freedom.
Whispering that all that lives
is known and never dies
‘… a poet of great sensitivity, a deeply religious poet, without being a Religious Poet. Her spirituality is grounded in the depths of ‘ordinary’ life – the extraordinary life.’
Joy Mead is a poet, a member of the Iona Community and the author of several previous books. She has been involved in development education and justice and peace work, and occasionally leads creative writing groups.
