The poetry in this memorable book, Optics, uplifts, informs, and harmonizes language with its music. Its writer believes a poet must both think and feel his/her words; a poet must see them and hear them. He rests firmly on his tradition, and, like all who make a unique contribution, recognizes that he too “stands on the shoulders of giants.”

So prepare yourself for the kind of aesthetic experience every soul craves and deserves.

The mystical and lyrical poems in Optics: The Mystical Poet’s Guide to the Science of Inner Sight, by Vincent Carver Gilliam are a tremendous aid and salve in our time, in our chaotic world. Optics, its poetry and design, is a work that arose, and will convey you too, from the depths of prayer to the heights of meditation. These poems will help you sit quietly, and while contemplating them, you will start experiencing hints of the spiritual reality that underlies them, as they awaken you to appreciate the Source of all life.
