Editorial Reviews

Review

"A superb collection of 125 poems, by Buddhist and non-Buddhist poets, on essential concepts in Buddhism.” ― Spirituality and Practice

“In his clear and elegant introduction, John Brehm writes that he hopes these poems will come to be spiritual friends—and that seems to me a wonderful way to meet them... Each time you read one of these poems, a path opens to seeing more precisely, feeling more deeply. You don’t have to be a poet or on any particular spiritual path to appreciate The Poetry of Impermanence, Mindfulness, and Joy. As Brehm reminds us, “Living in the full knowledge that everything changes changes everything. It loosens our grasp and lets the world become what it truly is, a source of amazement.”” -- Ellen Bass, author of The Human Line and Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets

“This collection would make a lovely gift for a poetry-loving or dharma-practicing friend, it could also serve as a wonderful gateway to either topic for the uninitiated.” ― Tricycle

“I simply love this anthology of poetry. John Brehm has mined the hearts and minds of forgotten and famous alike, prompting his readers to stretch ever more gently into this ephemeral existence. These poems, ancient and modern, from East and West, point us to a poignant life, where the gateway to meaning involves learning to notice and include the ten thousand joys and sorrows along the way.”

  -- Sarah Powers author of Insight Yoga

“Words have great power to transform human consciousness. This collection of words, mindfully crafted by masters of language, amplifies the possibility of consciousness transformation exponentially. John Brehm has given us a superb selection.” -- Mark Brady, PhD, author of The Wisdom of Listening

“Jubilant, thoughtful, startling, and pure, the poems in The Poetry of Impermanence, Mindfulness, and Joy remind us that every poem is a pond, and every pond a poem. Slow down. Dip your toes. See the ripples in each reflected moon. Swim a while in the deep brilliance of language, image, and sound.” -- Dinty W. Moore, author of The Mindful Writer and Director of Creative Writing, Ohio University
