These poems are a continuation of House of Mirrors, the polishing of the soul's spirit and dissolving further from self into Love and its Source; a striving to become in tune with the tongue of the Invisible, the Silent One; to become not just the harp and harp's song but the vibration and the fingers that pluck the heaven-strings; to become not just the flute but to shed everything of ego in order to be the e... more

by Gary GalsworthBeyond the Wire (Close Hand Press, 2016), is a collection of poems by Gary Galsworth. It was written over a period of many years. Poetry was a private craft Mr. Galsworth kept to himself, until recently. His poems show him to be a straightforward teller of stories; an explorer who candidly delves into the nuances of love and loss, beauty and pain, change and reinvention. His poems weave an oft times chaotic past with the fine threads of resilience and optimism.
