Ghost Orchid
by Maurya Simon


Overview -
For what does the spirit yearn? To know God. Maurya Simon's wonderful new book, Ghost Orchid, throws fresh light on that traditional question and answer in poems full of the sensuous language of the "Song of Songs" and the graphic images of modern disaffection. She shows us good and evil, both conscious and unconscious, and, even as she doubts such a reality, asks for God's "touch upon our waking lives." The yearning to know God, the legacy of human generations, has its latest expression in these ravishing poems.
