In this...poignant volume Paul Goldman invites us to look beyond the veil of the manifest and reach for a higher realization of our divine connection. He has a rare talent for pointing from what we know to what some of us dream of or strain to remember. "In the bliss of silent memory, we just listen- to the sound-calling us, calling us home..." He must be read with the heart as well as the mind and a willingness to receive beyond the words. It's hard to share a connection like this unless you have experienced it. In the poem Syncopation Paul says,"I have never stopped dancing to the steps of love you have freely given me." Believe it.
From cover to enticing cover, step into an endless journey of the soul that dances with words and glides through melodious brush strokes. To explore this creation is to take oneself beyond reading and into a wormhole of vibrant inspiration. Each poem invites the traveler into the depths of the heart, and transports them on the wings of freedom. Free to be true, invoking the deepest, richest corners of their heart to embrace the universe within.
Paul Goldman’s poetry does more than reveal a glimpse at our infinite nature; it carries us in and out of the tangible and intangible, the physical and non-physical. From self to spirit to senses to soul and beyond, Paul’s use of words to express is second to none. He offers us a dance through the language of love while at the same time grounding us in a realness that transcends any perception of separation. Paul has a way of offering his audience a taste of his individuality while encouraging the connectedness in us all. His words carry us into the realm of the Divine, allowing us to co-create a multi-sensory experience. Paul has offered a way for us to read in silence while taking a colorful and explosive adventure at the same time.
