This is the first collection of poems by Jeffrey Gale. They range in subject from cosmic pastoral to cosmic space. The aim is to cover themes of human interest that are eternal. The dilemmas of human existence and beauties of wildlife in landscapes inspire the author. Others describe aspects of our lovely earth as metaphors for life now in his searching and questioning consciousness. He has traveled this world far and wide, making meditational paintings in inspiring places, especially Indian Himalayas. See the book covers and illustrations inside. He has lived in Devon for about twenty-five years and regards it as his spiritual home. Most of that period was spent in Totnes, so the River Dart and Dartmoor figure in some poems. “The good earth speaks through my art, whether painting or poetry, and true art must always be a mystery” (written on September 2018). Most were composed specially for our “Poetry and Music” program, held monthly and broadcast on Sound Art Radio studios in Dartington, Totnes, Devon (102.5 FM).
