About the Book

Uncharted Sorrows: The Incandescence of Loss, offers poems traversing both personal and collective heartache and loss. When we grieve, the territory is full of angst. Thwarted desire is a cruel taskmaster; limitation, loss, and death ultimately have their way. Though we rail at the injustice of dashed dreams, we heal by allowing ourselves to surrender to the alchemical mercy of a process beyond our grasp. As we do so, we become kinder and more compassionate toward ourselves and others. We grow more spiritually astute, understanding, and wise. These poems seek to accompany you through your own dark times. Though your sorrows are yours alone, others share the broader field of grieving with you. May you find comfort in this, while discovering a kind of holiness in the unexpected incandescence of your own grief.
