Voice in the Whirlwind
by S.R. Lavin
"Voice in the Whirlwind reveals an awareness of a shared humanity with an engaged ethical foundation and a spiritual reverence in nature. The scope of Lavin's vision envelops the depth and breadth of the human experience. S. R. Lavin has nurtured these penetrating insights for three decades and now readers can share the complete experience with him in this one volume." -Debi Staples
Contained within this one volume are as yet unpublished poems, as well as poems previously published in quarterlies, magazines, and anthologies. Lavin's writings span three decades: a maturing visionary seeking peace and beauty while confronting injustice and social evils, and never failing to ponder those mysteries beyond our finite understandings.
Through suffering and the courage to endure, Lavin offers a reassuring voice and an affirmation of a life that has been lived fully in touch with what is worth struggling to attain, and, without apology, to stand resolutely against injustice.
Taken as a body of work, these poems offer a complete and expansive vision of the human capacity to see and comprehend how the forces of Nature are woven in concert with his existential narrative. The poems convey what it means to be vulnerable and connected to our deep human needs.
