If you’re a fan of Maya Angelou, John O’Donoghue, Mary Oliver, or the ancient wisdoms of Rumi or Kabir, you’ll find poems here that are likely to inspire you. This is a sample audiobook, with just twelve lush and imaginative poems.

The poetry takes many forms, from narrative to haiku, with subjects divided into questions, works, histories, moments, gifts and blessings.

Whether explaining why true love never hurts, gazing at a newborn baby, or translating an ancient Irish blessing into contemporary relevance, each poem offers access to that open, inner space where “the splendor of creation awaits” us.

Narrated by the poet.
