From Infinity to Infinity Volume 2 (Paperback)
Flowing forth from Dijon Bowden's first collection, From Infinity to Infinity, From Infinity to Infinity Vol. 2 continues this spiritual journey while offering up fresh images, concepts, and truths. "With a full heart, I'll share what's been unlocked for me" we are told, and what is unlocked is space, breath, an insistence on finding our honest purpose in a slowed down present moment. In 88 shining, new poems, Bowden harnesses these dynamic meditations infused with ancient and diverse wisdom. Here we see the poet reaching for his roots in West Africa with the same ease with which he incorporates classic teachings from farther east, calling on "the ancient art of Kintsugi" to open up how we grow from our hardships. From Infinity to Infinity Vol. 2 weaves a holistic blending of traditions to truly serve our modern and globally connected world. With memorable lines "like condensation on the outside / of a tall glass of lemonade," we are shown how "mental patterns of sloth and doubt / are invited to slink away."
From Infinity to Infinity Vol. 2 infuses the mind with the kind of calm clarity which animates us to live "in service to fly free and become whole." These lines are blessings which work their way into the spirit and reward revisiting, a wonderful next step on this multi-volume journey
