I Awoke in Dreamland: Poems from Either Side
Sound, rhythm and lush imagery have starring roles in this one-of-a-kind collection of poetry that celebrates the author 's six surreal decades of life on Earth.
In a starburst of vibrant images both lavish and spare, cerebral and sensual, the author confronts some of life's arcane mysteries: the hazy boundaries between otherworldly dreams and dreamy realities, the tangled inscrutable cosmos, and the wondrous miracle of each minute of life on our lonely planet. With tragic wit he logs our rudderless journey on mankind's ship of fools then celebrates with rapture the divine beauty of true love. Finally, in defiance of his own sense of reason, the author meditates upon the undeniable sensation of the inexplicable presence of God in every atom of his being. Meant to be read aloud and savored, the poems in this collection create luxuriant images with Galbraith's keen sense of sound and rhythm.
