Through the Wondrous Petalled Eyes of God
God has given man a uniquely creative intelligence, and Robert Connolly's poetry comes from his lifelong exploration of that miraculous gift. His own quest for enlightenment through exhausting bouts of deep thought has given him liberating insight, and many of the poems in this collection probe the mysteries of man's existence. Others are based on a great diversity of subjects, from childhood memories ('First Confession') to environmental issues ('The Death of a Tree'), relationships ('Love Assassination') and nature ('The Mysterious Hare'). They all reveal something of the great diversity of human experience on this endlessly fascinating planet we call Earth.
