Streamsby Joseph Kent
“The poems swirl in and out of things, always bearing a spiritual presence. . . . [Kent’s] poems are hinges around which humans swing to close and open the doors of perception. . . . We come to life in these poems of greater being.”
–The Book Reader
“Joseph Kent’s second collection of poems, Streams, is an advance in consciousness and perception, a further transmutation of the mundane into a poetry that leaps beyond existence and knowledge into an integral fullness of spirit. . . . after all the poems have been read and digested, what is left is an anticipation that we, in this world, are capable of living in both simultaneously, that the worlds blend and harmonize, and that there is a whole, a spiritualization of flesh and a materialization of spirit and light into bone and blood. . . . In his poems . . . there is earth and spirit, a dance of the two, one changing into the other and back again. . . . Joseph’s poems express truthfully the in-betweenness we live and often experience. . . . the poems take us forward to a new time, one we haven’t reached, where, strange to say, we can reach our beginnings . . . can live . . . more conscious of who we are.”
–from the foreword by John Brander editor, California State Poetry Quarterly, author of Drawing Dreams and Trail of the Moon.
