Occasionally, the day-to-day monotony of life is unexpectedly interrupted by thoughts and experiences--beautiful and profound, or painful and sad. Depending on the person, these moments may be instantly forgotten or even go unrecognized. But these moments are crucial because they lift us from the mundane into the experience of the transcendent or facilitate our demise into what Hobbes called ""life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short."" Lucidly written in both verse and prose, Voices of the Soul is at once existential and simple in the revelation of the sacred. A provocatively straightforward expose, these poems fully engage the revealing power and beauty of nature and explore what it means to be human--a complex enigma discovered in the inspired nuances of the poetic imagination. In a materialistic age of disbelief, isolation, anxiety, and spiritual yearning, the words you'll discover in this book--written with emotional urgency--moving, powerful, and beautifully transparent, will revitalize and sustain your mind, body, and soul reminding us that we are not alone--and more importantly, that we're a dynamic part of an ineffable and meaningful cosmos. ""In Voices of the Soul, Charles Dundee gives eloquence to the ordinary, exploring shades of emotion that loiter around the edges of everyday life. The author refuses to wallow in ditches of despair, but instead, his rhythmic phrasing soars. Using evocative imagery, he peels away the grit to unmask the marvelous grace within reach of those who choose to engage their senses by seeing the world through lenses honed in the heart and soul. A truly inspirational collection."" --Ken R. Abell, Author of Shadows of Revenge, Nightmares of Terror, Altars of Tomorrow, and The Beadle Files.
