The Mystical Dance is a book of one hundred and eight mystical, nature, and spiritual poems inspired by Rumi, Tagore, Paramananda, Hafiz, Thoreau and the great world spiritual teachings.
Many people have experiences in nature, or within themselves, which are often beyond what language seems adequate to express. Experiences of peace, reverence, awe, bliss, a sense of the presence of something larger than ourselves and all of humankind.
It is these experiences, that we might say are of a mystical nature, that have found some expression in the word forms in this book.
Although words can only point to or remind us of the fullness of these moments, hopefully there are some sign posts and reminders in the pages that follow.
"Gordon Burnham is a wonderful poet who is member of that select and rare group of poets which is able to successfully express the mystical beauty of nature in their poetry." ~ Cliff Johnson, Author, Inner Peace in a Busy World
