Details: Product Description

The poems in Still Possible pay homage to the invisible passage of time – the deep, private current that wends through our lives as a steadfast companion, sculpting our interior worlds as inexorably and exquisitely as its visible manifestations. Whyte turns his eye, and his pen, to the possibilities and harvests this shaping reveals: the shyness and vulnerability of love, the illusion of imperfection, and the new invitations that beckon along the way. The poems reflect an abiding faith in time’s wisdom: a journey turned away from in youth waits patiently for later maturity; an early experience ripens in secret to reveal, decades later, a full understanding. Under Whyte’s poet-philosopher gaze, a rain-soaked day in an Irish farmhouse becomes a meditation on the essence of a truly good day: a settled contentment, alert and open to whatever may call. Plus, sheep, Seamus Heaney and a dog. Powerful language rests on a foundation of what isn’t said, a silence underpinning the eloquence of articulation. In this way, Still Possible hovers above the numinous and the unknowable – what we pray for, what we pass on, what mystery awaits and, in the end, what it might mean to be happy.

About the Author

Internationally acclaimed poet David Whyte makes his home in the Pacific Northwest, where rain and changeable skies remind him of the other, more distant homes from which he comes: Yorkshire, Wales and Ireland. He travels and lectures throughout the world, bringing his own and others’ poetry to large audiences. He holds a degree in Marine Zoology, and is the recipient of honorary degrees from Neumann College and Royal Roads University. He is the author of eleven books of poetry and four books of prose, as well as a collection of audio recordings.
