Christopher Seid has the ability to bring life experiences -- from the mundane to the profound -- into clear focus through his sensitive, intelligent voice. He has crafted a wonderful collection of poems that reveal the master craftsman that he is -- his words flow easily, subtle enough to leave room for the imagination; powerful enough to move the soul. A worthy read that I will return to again and again.
I've been waiting for this book for many years. The Age of Exploration is full of passion, wonder, mystery and joy – the kind of writing that makes you feel happy to be alive and part of it all. Walk with these poems, "through huckleberry over dunes to Nauset Beach." Gaze at the midnight sky, "Blue ash / from the full moon's burn." "Celestial fireworks." You'll find "Radiant knowledge," luminous moments of angst, like a hitchhiker, "waiting / for someone, anyone, to take him home." At the core of these poems is a quiet transcendence – "Every cell pumped with light." A lingering "‘Ah' – drop / of ink in the ocean at night." "Singing a capella / some improvisational ode to joy." ~ Diane Frank, author of Swan Light and Yoga of the Impossible
