John Hermon is a passionate wordsmith whose writing is as much an act of self-indulgence as it is a delight for his readers.
This anthology comprises carefully crafted poems that chronicle the writer’s experience of bereavement following the loss of his wife Mandy. Together with him, we journey through the seasons of the soul, looking afresh at Easter, Christmas and other biblical stories as he glimpses God’s beauty, love and faithfulness amidst the pain of grief. Discerning divine colours of hope which transcend the desolate greys of mourning, John’s poems on loss recall the beautiful lament psalms of Scripture.
This collection is inspired by a mindfulness of God and a sense of wonder at His creation that will speak to every season of your life, whether read in the quietness of your home or as part of the church’s liturgy.
