Poetry Magnum Opus

Upon reading Robertson Davies


Recommended Posts



In darkness, deep complexity,

dots of light and understanding

shine amid perplexity.


Words are not mere signifiers

for untold millions of civilians.


No, they act as signal fires

calling, reassuring, reaching down


into the shared uncertainty

(whether born too late or born too soon)

deep in our human cocoon.

Bren, I am deeply impressed with your new style. You've made a big change in your writing. I see how you are calming your writing pen, and you are producing softer poems.


"Human cocoon" is a great expression. The imagery works in a proper way, also.


This is wonderful poem.
