About This Book

In Water Language Peter Gorham links together a diverse set of poems exploring history, mythology, diverse locales including Hawai'i and Antarctica, and the inner landscape of the self. These short works are framed and infused with the sounds and images of water--ocean, rain, river, ice, and stream--flowing through them or just beneath their surface. They take us through the pain of loss, the mystery of joy, and ultimately the hope of a higher love and power that governs our lives. Water language is the language of our own bodies and souls, which speaks within us before the words take shape in our mouths. The author, professor of physics by vocation, and a sailor and surfer by passion, forges together a strange alloy of language and imagery that draws us in, surprises, convicts, and rewards us with the sense that our lives are not forgotten by the God who is there.
