In "The Flowers of Albion," the author has attempted a fusion between the classic repertoire of Persian imagery and lyricism with Western influences of metered prose and rhyming verse. The result is a collection of 275 poems that examine with ecstatic voice and energy the breadth and myriad truths of human emotions.

These encompass the spurs of love, rage, sadness, pleading and longing; consuming desire for an unnamed Beloved and the euphoric pleasure that comes from reunion. Parables about human follies and revelation are told that emerge from the deepest motives of the human heart to be intimate with the worldly and divine. More than anything, a sense of unbridled joy is conveyed that urges the reader to probe for the searchlight of inner truth and be awakened in the radiance of spiritual transcendence.
