Incandescent Visions by Lee Hudspeth

I’ve always been a fan of just about all genres of books, including poetry. Today I’d like to welcome a new-to-me author and tell you a bit about his newly published poetry book.
 

INCANDESCENT VISIONS     

By Lee Hudspeth
*Format: Paperback, Hardcover, eBook, Audio
*Pages: 64
*ISBN: 978-1-7334364-1-0 (Paperback)
*Publication Date: December 2019

Having written numerous works of nonfiction, this is Lee Hudspeth’s debut book of poetry. Incandescent Visions explores the meaning of the human experience, as the author encourages his readers to ponder the universe and their place within it, and to catalyze their own creative potential.

From the sublime shores of the Mediterranean to the majestic expansiveness of deep space, this book contemplates nostalgia, perspective and the gift of love. Through five short yet powerful, thought-provoking chapters of contemporary poems—and a dash of elegant, evocative haiku—Hudspeth takes his readers on a journey across the inner landscape of struggle, triumph, self-realization and imagination.

Here is one of Lee’s poems for your reading pleasure.

“The Point of Four Winds”

 

One is Day, to remember

Two is Night, to caress
Three is Rain, to bless
Four is Cosmology, to engender
 

Bringing me tolerance

The four winds encourage clarity
Resist the hubris of me
Upend my elitist poverty
Reject the paralysis of incuriosity
 

Missing the point altogether

With my own tempest
I am guilty
So I work to be kinder
The six breaths and all the rest
Let it go, fratello

    Someone (Rumi?) said that poetry is the language of the heart - which makes a heap of sense to me.
    Huge congratulations to Lee and thank you for the introduction.
