About this Item

Paperback. 152 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.The poems in Departure of the Blossoms continue the narrative of Return of the Martyrs, as three martyrs return after four centuries to view modern society and to rejoin those from whom they were separated. In their experiences they discover the dissolution of marriage and family, the state of normless society, and the switch of priority from love to material wealth. Once more they witness that rulers, opinion makers, and commerce impose upon a nation the values of a few elites. However, the process is thorough, widespread, and rapidly advancing in modern society. The ultimate effect of the poems is to compare the eternal with the momentary and to challenge the reader to consider the loss of the higher identity. In spontaneous ways the poems assert that love is eternal, reconciled by divine compassion and renewed in the afterlife. They ask: will an essential capability of human nature eventually be lost The story that pervades the poems was given to the author to warn that the desire for personal gain, position, and power of peoples and nations needs to be placed second to the cause of relieving pain and sorrow. For this concern is of an eternal nature, as is the human spirit. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781425945961

About this title

Synopsis:

The poems in Departure of the Blossoms continue the narrative of Return of the Martyrs, as three martyrs return after four centuries to view modern society and to rejoin those from whom they were separated. In their experiences they discover the dissolution of marriage and family, the state of normless society, and the switch of priority from love to material wealth. Once more they witness that rulers, opinion makers, and commerce impose upon a nation the values of a few elites. However, the process is thorough, widespread, and rapidly advancing in modern society. The ultimate effect of the poems is to compare the eternal with the momentary and to challenge the reader to consider the loss of the higher identity. In spontaneous ways the poems assert that love is eternal, reconciled by divine compassion and renewed in the afterlife. They ask: will an essential capability of human nature eventually be lost? The story that pervades the poems was given to the author to warn that the desire for personal gain, position, and power of peoples and nations needs to be placed second to the cause of relieving pain and sorrow. For this concern is of an eternal nature, as is the human spirit.

About the Author:

After 34 years of long hours and very active service in the Christian ministry, the author evidenced failure of physical health and chose to retire. He began a regimen of long walks and withdrawal from tiring social involvements. During this time he sought answers to questions in his earlier life posed by unexplained spiritual happenings. At times during his daily routine he experienced miraculous events with startling evidence even seen by others. These events came with hints of verse which he largely ignored. When he at last investigated, he found them related to a Christian martyr and his wife. After prayer and research, he began to write poems he was given. They present Christian experience in a modern secular society. In these situations he also experienced an unseen Christian presence and plaintive cries of faith. The author desired to write these events in poetry as the means of communication in which matters of soul and spirit can best be told. In the poetry of Departure of the Blossoms the lives of martyrs over 400 years ago are portrayed in their sometimes terrifying and soul searching decisions. The characters and identities challenge the reader with radical decisions of life and death as they confess Christ. Reading these poems brings the reader to question the modern style of Christian faith that is often characterized by comfort, luxury, and wealth rather than the willingness to surrender home, belongings, and family for the Savior who did so for them. Why do unknown martyrs enter our lives with flashbacks of their witness? After years of thought concerning these poems, the author views them as a lifelong mystery. They call us to a life of values, virtues, and experiences that lead into eternity. Still, the details of their origin remain a mystery.
